STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
New to the Whelehans wine range Chateau Fabre-Gasparets is a part of the Famille Fabre mini wine empire in the Languedoc. Of the five unique & different Chateau we have chosen three to showcase their various wines. Located in the high quality Corbiéres-Boutenac region, Chateau Fabre-Gasparets produced superbly concentrated mineral laden wines . The vineyards here are worked organically.
10 Months Old oak.
The Viognier grapes used here , were left "hang" a touch longer on the vine in order to achieve over ripe flavours. then fermented 50% in new oak, 50% old oak. Then aged on lees for 10 months in old oak....the result ? An extraordinarily big rich powerful wine with bags of complexity and character. One for serious Viognier aficionados.
