Wine Entry : Chateau Manos 2002 AOC Cadillac

Managed to get this wine at Bugis Cold Storage (S$ 29.95)one look at it and the description confirmed I had found another winner…Just like the Chateau Bondut 2002, which is very popular with my family, though a little more subtle. This wine is a golden colour in a 750 ml bottle at S$29.95. Recommended value for a sweet wine.

Smell : Fruity, flora and peachy smell.

Taste : Lighter than most botrytis, roundness refreshing sweetness.

After-taste : Citrus fruits with orange peel finish.

Description at the back of the label :

This sweet, luscious wine is the result of a blend of 70% Semillon, 20% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Muscadelle. Harvesting by hand, is carried out in several successive stages to ensure that each precious berry is very ripe and has been attacked by Botrytis Cinerea (Noble Rot) which dries out the berries and concentrates the sugars.

To obtain the optimum quality of this vintage, we have not treated or filtered this oak aged wine. Some natural deposits may occur but will not affect the clarity or taste of the wine.Chateau Manos, sweet Cadillac, has a rich, golden colour and intensely deep candied and toasty aromas. A slight acidity is present to balance the sweetness.
