Domaine de Grange Neuve Monbazillac AOC

2017

In a Nutshell

Fine, balanced and exceptional value.

Tasting Notes

A fabulous dessert wine, sweet and luscious with fine acidity for a clean finish. The nose is fresh with classic botrytis marmalade and ripe nectarine and melon, flavours on the palate are richer, honey and toffee finishing with a twist of bitter orange zest.

Production Notes

Vineyards are based in the heart of Perigord, near Bergerac along the valley of the Dordogne river. Here, on the river slopes there is a particular micro-climate which favours the development of the botrytis necessary to make this style of sweet wine. Vines average 25 years of age. Grapes are hand harvested at a very late stage of maturity, in three successive 'triage', to ensure that only the most mature grapes are picked. Grapes are harvested in October and November. Grapes are gently put into a pneumatic press and the juice is transferred to temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After fermentation the wine is matured for 24 months.
