"Viñas de Camou" wines from Chateau Camou
In the classic style of the wines of Bordeaux, the Sauvignon Blanc wines have been fermented 100% in new French Oak Barrels (225 lts Seguin Moreau) for 12 months. Yellow green in color, great transparency and brightness, tropical fruit (passion fruit, guava, apple, peach, melon). Citrus and toasted oak aromas provide a character with great balance, unctuous body and a nice fresh evolution followed by a long aftertaste.
The micro-climate, the sandy-clay soil of Cañada del Trigo, as well as the mixing of 60 year old vines with young ones from the variety of Chardonnay produce this great wine. Made in the most traditional way, fermentation in new French barrels (225 lts Seguin Moreau) during nine months. Golden - Yellow in color, clean and brilliant. Delicate aroma of tropical fruits, peach, butter, honey and toasted oak, a complex and balanced flavor; oily body and a long - lasting aftertaste.
