Château Timberlay "Cuvée Prestige" Red - Bordeaux Supérieur

Château Timberlay has created a red Cuvée Prestige that is made from grapes from the best parts of the estate.
The grapes are hand-picked and carefully sorted.

The varieties are evenly divided between Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This Cuvée Prestige is traditionally fermented in temperature-controlled concrete vats. It is left on the skins for about three weeks, after which it is aged in oak barrels. Two thirds of these barrels are new, and one third has been used for the previous vintage.

Château Timberlay Cuvée Prestige is a fine wine with a deep colour and an elegant bouquet of ripe fruit, overlaid with hints of vanilla, spice and fresh toast. This full-bodied, rich and well-balanced wine has silky, soft tannin, and a delicious long aftertaste with just the right touch of oak.
