  • A wonderfully fresh and aromatic expression of this rare grape variety. Floral and fruity aromas lead to a crisp, fresh palate where the vibrant citrus fruit is layered with hints of almond and flinty minerality. The Solis Lumen range, meaning 'Light of the Sun', was created to highlight the importance of the Mediterranean Sea, the sun and wind which shape their wines, while the Stars range has been produced for those who appreciate a modern, fresh and fruity varietal wine and is complemented by quirky packaging

The grapes were carefully selected and 100% destemmed before 24 hours of pre-fermentation maceration. The grapes were gently pressed, and the must was fermented with selected yeasts at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks to promote freshness and aromatic expression. The wine was then matured in stainless steel tanks without the influence of oak.

This is a wonderfully fresh and aromatic expression of this rare grape variety. Floral and fruity aromas lead to a crisp, fresh palate where the vibrant citrus fruit is layered with hints of almond and flinty minerality.

Winery

Made from 100% Carignan Blanc, a rare Mediterranean variety of which only 250 hectares remain, mostly in the Languedoc region. Carignan Blanc is not the main variety in major appellation laws and is therefore labelled Vin de France. This cuvee is produced from 70-year-old vines cultivated in a two-hectare plot by the sea in Castelnau-de-Guers. The cooling influence of the coastal breezes enhances the freshness of this naturally high acidity variety and balances the rich, concentrated flavours from this warm and sunny Mediterranean climate. The Gobelet vines are pruned according to the traditional Mediterranean bush method, allowing shade from the leaves to protect the grapes from the sun. The old vines yield 60 hectolitres per hectare; the yields are not overly restricted to avoid heaviness and weight in the resulting wine. The vines are grown in limestone-rich soils, which contribute to the elegance of the Cuvee and the grapes are harvested during the cool of the night to retain freshness.
