Overview

The tradition of fine winemaking continues with ‘The Château’ Range. This ‘Botrytis Semillon’ is made from specially selected parcels of grapes which have been affected by noble rot or ‘Botrytis Cinerea’ as it is known.

The fruit is cold soaked overnight then pressed. The juice is settled to clarify, fermented with tight grained French oak. Fermentation takes between 10 to 15 days while kept at a constant temperature no higher than 18 degrees. The wine is aged on lees, to enhance complexity and mouthfeel on the palate. After fining and clarification, the wine is carefully filtered before bottling.
