Production

Grapes are sourced from vineyards within the Graves district of Bordeaux. Botrytis (noble rot) is allowed to affect the grapes, concentrating their sweetness and flavour. The grapes are hand-picked late in the vintage and, on average, it takes 3 passes through the vineyard to ensure that the maximum quantity of grapes have been beneficially affected by botrytis. The grapes are treated very carefully during pressing so as not to damage them and to maintain their delicate characteristics.

Tasting notes

A classic botrytis nose, gently floral and honeyed with hints of citrus marmalade. The palate is rich and smooth with flavours of barley sugar and bittersweet mandarin.

Food match

Serve chilled with a host of fruit or cream based desserts. Try also with blue cheeses such as Roquefort or Stilton.
