Granito Semillon, J Bouchon

Granito Semillon

Description

Made from old vines planted in the 1940s, which are not irrigated, and planted on ancient granitic soils at 183m above sea level. The grapes are hand-picked and pressed in a vertical press followed by barrel fermentation. The wine is then aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. The resulting wine is fresh with ripe citrus and orchard fruit flavours, balanced by subtle, well integrated oak. Extremely well structured and complex.

Producer Details

Bouchon history begins with an adventurous young French man’s dream almost a century and a half ago. Emile Bouchon left his little home of small winegrowers in France, to board on a ship, towards Chile in the spring of 1887. Emile came as a winemaker adviser and after many years of hard work, he created his own wine cellar in Colchagua Valley, that his family continue to this day.
