Grape VarietyBordeaux Blend
Tasting Notes - Red 2016 Vintage
A blend of 72% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Cabernet Franc, with the red, black fruit and black cherry flavours combine with mild spice and a touch of vanilla on the subtle and elegant palate. The powerful and round mid-palate reflects the perfect ripeness of the grapes harvested in 2016, while well-integrated tannins sustain a long, silky finish. ABV. 13.5% vol.
Tasting Notes - White 2017 Vintage
With the white, which is a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc: 28% Semillon and 2% Muscadelle, the nose opens on fresh fruit aromas, especially grapefruit, which gradually give way to tangy, zesty lemon notes. On the palate, from a round and fresh start of lemon flavours, the mid-palate offers a subtle combination of peach and grapefruit, leading into a long, very fresh and highly refined finish. ABV. 12.5% vol.
