Seller: rarewinemerchant (122) 100%, Location: Artarmon, Ships to: AU, Item: 142180941191 HOTLINE: 0409 121 151 Caronne St Gemme 2012 Caronne St Gemme 2012 Caronne St Gemme 2012 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot Caronne Ste Gemmes 45 hectares of vines, which have the Haut-Médoc appellation, sit on a gravel plateau typical of the Médoc, over an iron rich clay-sandstone base at the western end and a more sandy mix towards the Gironde. The encépagement is also fairly typical; there is a dominance of Cabernet Sauvignon, with a little less Merlot and just a few Petit Verdot vines. They are planted at a density of 10000 vines/ha, and have an average age of 25 years. A recent innovation introduced by François Nony is a green harvest which should improve the quality of fruit reaching the winery. After the September harvest, which is part by hand and part mechanical (an obvious focal point for further improvements), the grapes see a sorting and destemming at the winery, followed by a light crush and fermentation of fruit from distinct plots in either stainless steel or epoxy-lined cement. There is a light pumping over and a maceration of up to three weeks, before the wine is run into barriques for twelve months, of which 20% are new each year. The first press wine may also be blended in. There is a little bâtonnage before several rackings, an egg white fining and bottling.
