The offical red wine from the Royal Welsh Regimental Wine Collection.
Blended from 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot and then aged in oak for 12 months. A bouquet of ripe plums and bramble fruits with soft and well integrated tannin, good acidity and a very pleasing finish.
Made using the free run juice of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. A slightly richer rosé with good purity of fruit that matches well with food at any time of the year.
Château du Seuil Graves white wine is a blend of approximately 70% of the Semillon variety and 30% Sauvignon Blanc, The Semillon is partially fermented in new French oak barrels using the OXOLINE system and bottled 6-9 months after the harvest. It is a wine that will develop interesting flavours with bottle age and will keep for up to 10 years. The wine is of an appealing golden colour, has a fresh aromatic bouquet, is full and fruity with a long aftertaste.
The proximity of the Cérons appellation to the river Garonne is the reason why such high quality sweet whites are made here. A Semillon based sweet wine that exhibits a nose of ripe apricots and honey with a rich palate and racy, palate cleansing acidity.
'A lovely weight and richness. Ripe, rounded tannins with a core of dark, juicy fruit. Signature Gironde food friendly freshness on the palate and a delightful herbaceous note on the nose. A forward-drinking Bordeaux which can be enjoyed now but with sufficient structure to age up to 10 years.' - Jonathan, Retail Manager.
The Château du Seuil Graves red wine is made from a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.The finished wine is aged in french oak for up to 18 month prior to bottling.
The medium-bodied 2011 Lynch Bages possesses a saturated ruby/purple color as well as beautiful creme de cassis notes, a generous, concentrated, well-made, medium to full-bodied style and supple tannins. A successful effort in 2011, it should be drinkable in 3-4 years and last for 15+. It is a sleeper of the vintage.
