HALF Suduiraut, Lions de Suduiraut, Sauternes, France, 2015

Suduiraut is one of the historic Sauternes estates, 1er Cru Classé in the 1855 classification. Lions is made to be enjoyed young (so for example goes into just 10% new oak barrels) but is made with similar care to the grand vin: the fruit picked over five passages though the vines between 4th September and 27th October, giving a miserly yield of just 18 hectolitres per hectare.

A rich (a healthy 124 grams r.s) but forward style, from 92% Semillon and 8% Sauvignon Blanc. Tangerines and toffee. Now-2023

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.

Friendly helpful people selling good quality interesting wines from many countries and at competitive prices. Wines you will NOT find in the supermarket! Free local delivery has been a boon during lockdown. What's not to love about SVS???
