Winemaker's Notes:

One of the oldest Chateau in Bordeaux, originating in 1366, Chateau Timberlay produces estate grown Bordeaux wines with an ecological and terroir driven philosophy. Their offerings combine tradition and authenticity with an approach that makes Bordeaux accessible. This appellation Bordeaux Superieur combines Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grown in a single block, 125 hectare estate with soils with a mix of clay, limestone and sand perfectly suited to these varietals.

This wine is an intense, brilliant ruby red color. It offers a complex fruity bouquet (blackberries, black currants and strawberry) and elegant notes of oak and spice. Well-structured and fresh flavored – the wine is rich and round, with soft, subtle tannins; Long finish has hints of vanilla and cinnamon.

Blend: 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc

About Chateau Timberlay:

One of the oldest Chateau in Bordeaux, originating in 1366, Chateau Timberlay produces estate grown Bordeaux wines with an ecological and terroir driven philosophy. Their offerings combine tradition and authenticity with an approach that makes Bordeaux accessible. The Chateau Timberlay estate is farmed under the ecologically friendly guidelines of Terra Vitis. This includes practices such as jachere in which vineyard plots are planted with annual flowers to invigorate and enhance the soil’s organic structure and attract good predators. Beehives enhance the practice, helping to pollinate the flowers and encouraging a thriving, diverse ecosystem. Grasses are grown between the vines, eliminating the need for chemical herbicides and stimulating deep rooting and healthy soils.
