The large 90 hectare vineyard of Chateau Ferrande is planted for both red wine grapes and white wine grapes. 84 Hectares of vines are used for red wine grapes, which are planted to 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. 6 hectares of vines are reserved for white wine grape varieties, which are planted to an even split of 50% Semillon and 50% Sauvignon Blanc. Aged in an average of 20% new, French oak barrels for 12 to 14 months before bottling.

The terroir is sand, rocks, gravel and clay soils. The newer plantings in the vineyards are done at a higher level of vine density of 9,000 vines per hectare. On average, the vines are roughly 30 years of age. During harvest, the red wine grapes are picked by machine, however, the white wine grapes are harvested by hand.

Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Chateau Ferrande should reach peak maturity between 4-8 years of age after the vintage.

Chateau Ferrande is best served at 15.5°C. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift. The white wine of Chateau Ferrande is a perfect wine to serve with shellfish, sashimi, sushi, all types of seafood, chicken, veal and cheese.

Tasting Note: A medium bodied white from Graves from a dry vintage that was hit by rain in August. Vibrant creaminess in the mid palate and finish. Easy to enjoy early drinking white.
