FZ: A living heritage
Fieuzal creates wines that are memories of the past that can be kept and enjoyed at any moment. After 30 years of winemaking experience, our winemaker Stephen Carrier believes that there is no ‘right’ time to drink a wine, but that instead a truly great wine is great throughout the whole of its lifetime.
From the moment a new vine is planted to the many decades after a wine is put into bottle – every moment in between is just part of an exciting journey that keeps wines and the art of winemaking alive.
The wines of Château de Fieuzal have a distinct allure that is inseparable from the place from which they are grown. Every bottle enables us to share Fieuzal's unique energy, bringing to life every aspect of our complex terroir in an intense but precise balance. Fieuzal has the intriguing ability to hold one’s attention, by combining flavour and feeling; the senses and the sensual. Extraordinary freshness, naturally provided by our soils, holds the wines together with remarkable tension right to the finish. Fieuzal white is an enchanting balance between our Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon fruit. Aged for 12 months in French Oak barrels, the wine grows to fill the entire palate whilst providing a teasing combination of zesty, fruity and floral notes.
2018 offered a wet spring and early summer, followed by excellent ripening conditions that resulted in very fine fruit. September and October were a winemaker’s dream. This 'Indian Summer' allowed us to harvest each plot at its desired degree of ripeness.

Château de Fieuzal: 2018
The Sauvignon has wonderful freshness and the Sémillon all the richness one could hope for. The wine is showing remarkably well, offering a delicate acacia nose, a rich and generous mouthfeel and the saline finish that is often characteristic of Fieuzal.
