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.

Winery Tasting Notes
The luscious and rich Botrytis Semillon has a complex bouquet of marmalade and orange peel with a hint of apricot and toasted hazlenut.
The palate builds on the intense aromas and flavours and is enhanced by the long lingering finish with a refreshing acidity.
This wine is the perfect accompaniment to fresh fruit desserts, blue cheeses and pates.
Either drink fresh and young or cellar to enhance complexity .
