Vintage

While 2017 had a dry summer with lots of berries and not much juice, 2018 had enough occasional rain to fill the grapes with juice. Downy mildew and frost caused problems in some parts of the region. However, the harvests were excellent with a good quality crops, bringing 2018 in line with previous years and the promise of a very good vintage.

Vineyard

The vines are ideally located in Tautavel area, between Mediterranean Sea and Pyrenees Mountains, 30 kilometres north of Perpignan in the South of France area. The dry and sunny terroir enables Grenache, the emblematic grape variety of the Mediterranean, to express its best aromas. The soils in the vineyard have predominantly clay- limestone content.

Winemaking

A manual harvest was followed immediately by gentle pressing of the grapes. The must was transferred under a protective carbonic gas atmosphere, prior to fermentation. Fermentation then took place at low temperatures of between 15° to 18°C, in stainless steel vats. The wine was matured on the fine lees for several weeks adding complexity and texture to the final wine.

Tasting Note

The palest of salmon pinks; this is a wonderfully pure, fresh flavoured wine with delightful red berry aromatics. The red fruit characters are echoed on the palate, which has a slight sparkle giving the wine its lovely freshness and fruity vibrancy through to an elegant and mineral finish.
