Waitrose Sauternes Château Suduiraut
Waitrose Sauternes is made in partnership with Chateau Suduiraut, one of the greatest and most prestigious 1st growth properties in Sauternes using selected parcels of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc from the Chateau’s own vineyards, and benefiting from the outstanding winemaking team that produces 'Château Suduiraut' itself. Waitrose Sauternes enjoys the same meticulous hand-harvesting, the same attention during wine elaboration as for the Chateau's ""Grand Vin"". The use of oak is carefully managed, with 16 months in barrels of which 10% are new and 90% are secopnd use, to enhance the complexity and the fruit character of the wine. With emphasis on fresh, primary fruit, to give great appeal for drinking now and over the next five years.
