Style: Fruity & Smooth

Wine Style Guide

Light & Crisp

Light to medium bodied wines that are high in acid and light to medium fruit. Typically no oak.

Fruity & Smooth

Light to medium bodied wines with lots of juicy fruit, typically medium acid and medium oak.

Rich & Creamy

Full bodied wines that have typically undergone malo-lactic fermentation and/or spent time in oak.

Alcohol By Volume: 12.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

One of the oldest Chateau in Bordeaux, and first awarded for quality in 1893, Chateau Timberlay brings authenticity and tradition to its wines, but also crafts its Bordeaux wines to be approachable and accessible for every occasion. Attention to detail is a hallmark of this legendary winery through hand-picking and hand-sorting the grapes to the beehives on the estate that help cross-pollinate the flowers that are planted in the vineyards to enhance soil quality.

Their meticulous approach shines through in this Bordeaux Blanc blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. With its light straw color and hints of green, it showcases a subtle floral bouquet; well-balanced and full of character. Crisp yet soft flavors and very round and fruity with a touch of citrus. Enjoy with soft cheeses, fish and roast chicken.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe and forward, offering verbena, peach and citrus oil notes, but with good cut on the finish for balance."

The Wine...Ch. Timberlay Bordeaux Blanc 2011...The scene...Christmas Eve at our house with the family. The wife made salmon for the evening with shrimp to munch on. I had a few beers before dinner so when we sat down and opened the wine I was a bit full and maybe thats why the wine wasn't sitting well with me...wife said she liked it but I'm not gonna lie here...I don't much remember the wine so I'll go with the wife's three stars rating. I did buy another bottle of this but the Bordeaux Red Blends was the choice so maybe I'll remember that one.

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
