Profile

Smell

Ripe and aromatic on the nose, this golden-coloured wine offers notes of melon, orange peel, and white peach. The small amount of Sauvignon Blanc in the blend asserts itself with signature grapefruit aromatics, and there's an appealing nuttiness reminiscent of toasted almonds.

Taste

Medium-bodied and dry on the palate, with a hint of richness and weight thanks in part to having been aged on the lees. The acidity is present but balanced, making this a very food-friendly wine that will work with a variety of dishes.

Pairing

Try this Sémillon-heavy blend with Thai red curry or Palak Paneer - it pairs well with spicy dishes so don't be afraid of some heat!

Aromas and Flavours

Melon

Sweet and fruity, with a particular flavour/scent that resembles persimmons

Orange

orange

Peach

Fuzzy peach candies, or real-life fuzzy peaches fresh from a fresh B.C fruit stand.

Almond

All of you home-bakers out there will recognize this smell the next time you use marzipan.

Grapefruit

As refreshing as aromas come, the smell of grapefruit is purely invigorating.

Description

Château de Peyrel is located in the French region of Bergerac, just east of Bordeaux. Like its much more famous neighbour, the region is known mostly for red wines made primarily from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. And like Bordeaux, the region's white wines are some of the wine world's best-kept secrets! We're thrilled to share this example from Château de Peyrel, made from fruit sourced from the winery's 60-plus year old vines. It's primarily made from Sémillon, with a small percentage of both Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc added for aromatic complexity. Ageing on fine lees adds depth and texture to this fresh, dry wine, and there's no oak used at all, preserving the wine's natural freshness and fruit-forward nature. Enjoy this blend at about 8 C over the next 2-3 years.
