Château Saint Auriol Cuvée Collector
A perfect meal-long accompaniment for grilled or braised meats, fowl and game, but also dark chocolate cakes and of course cheese.
|Grape-variety||40% Syrah, 40% Grenache, 20% Carignan|
|Soil||clay-limestone, gravel with good permeability|
|Winemaking||The grapes are harvested partly by hand, partly by machine, then destemmed and lightly crushed before being put into the vats. Chilled pre-fermentation steeping. Daily pump-overs during fermentation, which lasts about 10 days. The wines then remain in contact with the marc for a month. Temperature-control throughout the process.. After pressing the wines are put into barrels.|
|Tasting Notes||This wine is noticeable for its matured tannins and red-fruit aromas, its hints of spice and vanilla. It is elegant, rich, complex and smooth. The ‘vertical’, vintage-on-vintage tastings regularly organized for buyers show an excellent ageing capacity. A perfect meal-long accompaniment for grilled or braised meats, fowl and game, but also dark chocolate cakes and of course cheese. Serving temperature: 17°C.|
