Winemaker Notes

An intense nose of citrus, white flowers. The palate has a nice fruity start with balanced oak and a long finish on exotic fruits.

Perfect with sea-food, scallops, prawns, white meat,oven-baked fish, or with cream sauce, sweetbreads, light cheese and foie gras.

Critical Acclaim

JS 93
James Suckling
Beautiful, flinty and smoky nose with lovely lemon character. Bold and vibrant with a lot of mineral freshness and racy drive at the finish. Great with seafood! Drink or hold. A blend of 50 per cent semillon and 50 per cent sauvignon blanc.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Cuvee Caroline reveals honeyed peaches, spiced pears and fresh lemon slices with a waft of fresh ginger. Medium-bodied, the palate is laden with stone fruit and spicy layers plus a racy backbone and great length.

Bordeaux, France

Famous for both its red and white wines, Graves is a large region, extending 30 miles southeast of the city of Bordeaux, along the left bank of the Garonne River. Red wine producing vineyards cover well over three times as much area as the whites. In the late 1980s, the French created the separate appellation of Pessac-Léognan within the northern confines of Graves. It includes all of its most famous properties, and the southern suburbs of the city Bordeaux itself. In French "graves" is a term used to indicate gravelly soils.

Sometimes light and crisp, other times rich and creamy, Bordeaux White Blends typically consist of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Often, a small amount of Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris is included for added intrigue. Popularized in Bordeaux, the blend is often mimicked throughout the New World. Somm Secret—Sauternes and Barsac are usually reserved for dessert, but they can be served before, during or after a meal. Try these sweet wines as an aperitif with jamón ibérico, oysters with a spicy mignonette or during dinner alongside hearty Alsatian sausage.
