Graves De Vayres
Vineyards are located between Bordeaux and Libourne, on a plateau overlooking the Dordogne River
Multiple parcels, varied exposure
Perfect trellising, extreme canopy management and high density planting are all employed to increase concentration and promote even ripening. Grapes are hand harvested.
Grapes are destemmed and gently pressed at low pressure. The juice is then cooled, then fermented in temp-controlled tanks.
The resulting wine is aged on it's lees for 6 months neutral barrels.
The appellation Graves de Vayres takes its name from the gravelly soils and the proximity to the village of Vayres. This unique 100% semillon wine is mineral driven with delicate aromas of melon and citrus and a faint hint of wood. It's an over-performing White Graves look-alike for about a third of the price!
