Description

There are no other sweet wines like those from Chateau d’Yquem. Anyone who loves wine knows about it and longs to one day drink their wine (again and again). Lots of care and attention go into the process of making the worlds most complex sweet wine and you get a multilayered, long lived wine of amazing intensity and grace. There is not a lot to be said about d’Yquem, you just have to taste it and experience it.

Sauternes

The undisputed headline act when it comes to sweet wines. Using thin skinned white varieties and having adequet rainfall and humidity in the vineyard means the noble rot botrytis cinerea can take hold and dehydrate the grapes on the vine. Taking away moisture but leaving sugar, acid and flavour behind. The resulting sweet wines are thick, intense and structure. The balance of acid and sugar make these wines able to evolve over many years. The great wines are some of the most expensive in the world.

Semillon

A somewhat shy variety that is most famous for balancing Sauvignon Blancs overt tendencies in table wines and sauternes styles. It found a home in the Hunter where the early picked wines can live for 50 years.

Sauvignon Blanc

Hero to many, weed to many more. Sauvignon Blanc sure does divide people. The pure expression of Sauvignon fruit is a stunning and exuberant array of tropical fruits with ripe herbs and plant material. It excels in the chalk, clay and sand of the Loire as well as the wonderful vineyards in Bordeaux for dry white and Sauternes production where Semillon curbs its outgoing nature.
