Fraîcheur Barrel Matured 2017
RELEASED JULY 2019
We were chuffed to bits when this won a Gold Medal and the SWVA Challenge Cup in the SWVA Competition Sep 2019 , just like its predecessor, the 2016, did in 2018, Judges said of the 2016 , "Mineral, peach nose, good mouth feel. honeyed with good complexity, and soft spice." "Lovely peachy nose with buttery coconut." "Light, extemely well-balanced, great mixture of fruit and coconut/oak".
This 2017 is from the same vines and the same barrel. 2017 was a warmer year, giving a slightly more rounded wine, and the wine was matured in the barrique for longer, 12 months instead of 7.
This is the third wine from our one Seguin Moreau "Fraicheur" oak barrique, matured in the barrel from March 2018 to March 2019. Fully-dry. Only 290 bottles made, each one hand numbered. No capsule over the natural cork closure.
This barrel was specially developed to enhance light, white varietal wines by Seguin Moreau of Cognac, respected French coopers. The oak is fine-grained and lightly toasted. and the barrel has acacia heads, adding brighter notes to the oak.
Has the weight to pair well with any light dish, or just enjoy it on its own.
