A special, limited-edition wine matured in our two Seguin Moreau "Fraicheur" oak barriques. 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 extremely lightly toasted and the barrel has acacia heads, adding brighter notes to the oak.
After the Gold Medal successes of our first Seguin Moreau "Fraîcheur" barrique, which we brought back from their tonnellerie (cooperage) in Cognac in 2016, we imported a second in 2019 to double our production of this multi-award-winning, limited edition wine. Then in 2020 a third, to replace our original after 5 vintages. This 2022 wine is the fourth vintage from barrel no. 2 and the third from barrel no.3. Silver Medal WineGB West Awards 2023.
Only 597 bottles made, each hand numbered. No capsule over the natural cork closure.
