Chateau Rahoul, Graves 2016
Merlot 62%, Cabernet Sauvignon 36%, Petit Verdot 2%
Precise aromas of blackberry, sandalwood and some hints of smoke and earthiness. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, fresh acidity, and elegant well-integrated new oak. The finish is long and silky.
Vineyard: The soils consist of gravel, sand and clay.
Winemaking: The red Chateau Rahoul is vinified in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic conversion takes place in a combination of stainless steel vats and French oak barrels. The wine is aged in 25 percent new, French oak barrels for 12 months before bottling. The 2016 vintage is ready to drink, but could be kept for two to three more years.
Chateau Rahoul counts 42 hectare, most of them planted to red varieties.
