Vineyard
The Rivesaltes appellation takes its name from the town of Rivesaltes, which in
Catalan means "High Banks". The plots are situated in Salses next to Rivesaltes, in the
Roussillon region, in a soil mainly composed of granitic and gneissic sands, brown or
black schists and occasionally of red limestone soils.


Winemaking
Harvest took place by hand when the grapes had reached optium maturity.
Destemming and crushing was followed by a short maceration period of around
three to five days. Fortification stopped the fermentation and retained some of the
wines natural sweetness. The wine was left to age for two years in barrel.

dried fruits, walnuts, currants, honey and a hint of spice. Exceptionally rich on the
