The little known Semillon variety makes up this rich, dry Bordeaux white wine. Wonderfully refreshing, it proves it can easily stand apart from Sauvignon when in the right hands.

Wine Makers

Chateau Haut-Garriga. by Alain Barreau

For six generations the Barreau family has resided in the commune of Grezillac. To this day they continue their tradition of winemaking and own both Château Haut-Garriga and Château Coitreau. The vineyards are located on the highest slopes overlooking St Emilion.

 

Chateau Haut Garriga is unusual in being 100% Semillon, the typical Bordeaux blanc being a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Mary Dowey was so taken with this wine that she commented 'I don't think I have ever come across a white Bordeaux that offers better value'. Anyone looking for an alternative to Sauvignon Blanc, while not straying too far off the mark, will be well rewarded with this 'immediately likeable' wine from Entre Deux Mers.

In The Press

Press Reviews

"A wonderful fresh, crisp, dry white, made entirely from Semillon (and therefore Sauvignon-free) with zesty lemon, green apple and melon fruits, finishing bone dry. It is low in alcohol and would make a perfect partner for seafood or as a mouthwatering aperitif." John Wilson, Irish Times

"I don't believe I have ever come across a white Bordeaux that offers better value than this immediately likeable, exuberantly fruity number. Interestingly, it's 100 per cent Semillon." Mary Dowey

By Mafer
Pleasantly surprised with this wine, not a big fan of Semillon but this was more like a NZ sauvignon blanc. very fruity, loved it and would buy again!
