A classic botrytis nose, gently floral and honeyed with hints of citrus marmalade. The palate is rich and smooth with flavours of barley sugar and bittersweet mandarin.

As both a négociant and a producer of its own wines, Maison Ginestet has long been convinced of the need to work the land in a viable manner and it places substantial emphasis on partnerships with sustainable agriculture-accredited winegrowing estates. Some growers are fully organic, and Ginestet is certified to bottle wines made from organically grown grapes.

Grapes are sourced from vineyards within the Graves district of Bordeaux. Botrytis (noble rot) is
allowed to affect the grapes, concentrating their sweetness and flavour. The grapes are hand-picked late in the vintage and, on average, it takes 3 passes through the vineyard to ensure that the maximum quantity of grapes have been beneficially affected by botrytis.

The grapes are treated very carefully during pressing so as not to damage them and to maintain their delicate characteristics.

Serve chilled with a host of fruit or cream based desserts. Try also with blue cheeses such as Roquefort or Stilton.
