hello late white 2012
Since we introduced our late, hand harvested Semillon last year we have regularly been asked when the latest vintage will be available. Well I’m pleased to let you know that its now available
I’ve always wanted to make a sticky but the Cotes de Bourg is not a suitable place to make it because of the limestone soil. Semillon need good clay soil to flourish and the area east of Bordeaux is traditionally the best for this. With the aid of Ludwig my consultant we have therefore chosen to buy our grapes and make our sticky in the Appelation of Saussignac. This AOC is next to Montbazillac which is better known but in comparison to the wines of Montabzillac, Saussignac is less sweet and more savory. I think a better balance.
“A half bottle is never enough and a full bottle is too much”: Often said, so we decided to bottle it in 50cl bottles. Its 100% Semillion. The grapes are left on the vine until botrytised and then hand harvested, fermented in Barrel and then conditioned in oak for 18 months. This is a very limited production as only 300 bottles (or one barrel) were produced
Tasting Notes: With aromas of honey and dried apricots and a hint of orange zest, at 12%. £12 per bottle, click here to buy.
