Made from a blend of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle, this classic white Bordeaux wine is briskly flavored, balanced, racy, refined, and hard to resist.
It has the proportions of a New Zealand Sauvignon, but it gives you those proportions along with the steely minerality of an Alsace Riesling and the classic flavors of a Bordeaux Entre-Deux-Mers. Light bodied, dry, fruity and easy to drink, it is a great white wine for all occasions!
Packed in an eco-friendly vacuum sealed bag of 5 litres, the bag-in-box is lighter and cheaper than glass bottles. Keep refrigerated and once opened, consume within 2-3 weeks. Cheers!

Chateau Palene is situated in the small village of Ladaux, in the heart of the Entre Deux Mers region of Bordeaux, 20 miles South East of Bordeaux. The Maubrac Guerin Estate is over 50 hectares of vines which they have had for more than a century. One of the oldest Bordeaux estate run today by the family 4th generation of winemakers.
The Vineyard is comprised of 40 hectares of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, and 15 hectares dedicated to white varietals such as Semillon 50%, Sauvignon Blanc 30%, and Muscadelle 20%. The landscape is mostly fertile and green, rolling gently between 33 and 330ft (10–100m) above sea level. The vineyard is planted on sand, lime clay hills that have great East-West exposures at a density of 3000 to 4000 vines stock per hectare. The average vine age is 20 years. The average yield is 65Hl/Ha and the annual production for the whites is approx. 600 hl and 2400 hl for the red.
Here the white wines are meticulously harvested in the early morning, destemmed, followed by skin contact and fermentation at cool temperatures and some aging on the lees in stainless steel or cement vats. The resulting wine is very brisk, racy, fruity and hard to resist!
While the Chateau Palene Red features a diverse range of aromas favoring the expressions of fruit with fresh and delicate aromas. The palate has a round structure with soft tannins. It is elegant, supple, balanced, and harmonious. Perfect with red meats and cheeses.
