Sauternes Castelnau de Suduiraut Half

Winemaker's Notes:

Castelnau de Suduiraut is the second wine of the prestigious Château de Suduiraut. The estate covers 90ha with a low yield of 17hl/ha and is the next vineyard to the north of Yquem. Château Suduiraut is a beautiful property situated in the commune of Preignac with magnificent gardens designed by Le Notre who was also responsible for those at Versailles. Sauternes is an appellation which applies to 5 villages to the South of the Ciron. The Ciron is a tributary of the Garonne and is responsible for the misty autumn conditions that give rise to noble rot, making it possible to make deliciously sweet wines from the concentrated sweet juice of the dehydrated grapes. Vintage: 2006 Grapes: 90% Semillion, 10% Sauvignon Blanc. Soil: Gravelly soil with clay and sand. Vinification: Selective hand harvest by successive pickings is followed by 2-3 weeks of fermentation in temperature controlled vats. The wine is then aged for 12 months in 2 year old oak barrels with racking every 3 months. Colour: Gold Taste: A beautifully balanced sweet wine suitable for long ageing. It has attractive fruit and a lively freshness. Serve: Chilled with Foie Gras and blue cheese.
