This is the dry white wine of the First Growth Sauternes house 'Chateau Guiraud'. Made from a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc & 30% Semillon, it is matured in the used barrels of their Sauternes wine for approximately 9 months with regular lees stirring during the first 3-4 months. The fruit is primarily sourced from a vineyard that was planted to Sauvignon Blanc by accident around 40 years ago. (For their Sauternes, Guiraud were after a Semillon-heavy cuvee - too much Sauvignon Blanc was not considered the right balance for a sweet wine). Instead of selling off the Sauvignon or re-planting, Guiraud decided to create a special dry white and the “G” was born.
Brilliant very pale straw colour with some greenish highlights around the edges and a watery hue. The nose opens with some herbaceous gooseberry and green apple top notes followed by hints of asparagus, citrus and dried herbs. Light across the palate but well textured featuring flavours of green apple and asparagus intermixed with some dried herbs followed by delicate citrus and light pencil shaving characters on the refreshing dry finish. Crisp acidity with a long aftertaste of green apple, asparagus, spicy herbs, citrus and light pencil shavings.
Drink over the next 4-5 years (2014-2019).
