This vineyard was planted with Chenin Blanc after the discovery that morning mists appeared in the autumn giving a great opportunity to make a sweet Botrytis style wine.
Shiny gold appearance. Pronounced nose of candied stone and exotic fruits, pineapple and apricot confit, orange confit, quince and honey. On the palate a powerful and intense sweetness is underpinned by a crisp backbone of acidity leading to a long and impressive finish.

Domaine Gayda is set amongst the rolling hills that lie between Carcassonne and Limoux in the village of Brugairolles. The Domaine has been set up to mirror the great estates of South Africa (with a first-class restaurant and cellar door) where founders Tim Ford and Anthony Record met in 2003. It was at Boekenhoutskloof that they met Vincent Chansault, the young French winemaker, who has since become the head winemaker at Gayda and one of the most exciting young winemakers in the Languedoc. This vineyard was planted with Chenin Blanc after the discovery that morning mists appeared in the autumn giving a great opportunity to make a sweet Botrytis-style wine. This unusual phenomenon (which is not guaranteed every year) can under the right climatic conditions produce wines of intense sweetness and complexity. Cool, humid mornings followed by dry, sunny afternoons are essential to encourage the development of Botrytis. This is a labour intensive but rewarding process which requires several passes at harvest time to pick only those bunches or berries affected by Noble Rot.
