Winemaking

Grapes come from one South-facing vineyard 10 to 30 metres above sea level in the Languedoc Roussillon region of Southern France. The 30 year-old vines are planted on a chalky clay plateaux, rich in Cretaceous limestone and loaded with quartz gravel chippings. Vines are planted at a density of 4,500 vines per hectare, producing yields of 50 hl/ha. Vines are trained using the Cordon de Royat trellis system giving increased control over sun exposure and ease of pruning by machine. No irrigation is necessary. Grapes are machine harvested in September at night to retain freshness and acidity. Grapes are carefully sorted in both vineyard and winery, with ripeness assessed before picking. At the winery, they are de-stemmed and crushed, with skin contact for 3-4 hours to draw out aromatics. After pressing, fermentation lasts 10 to 15 days at 16°C in cement tanks. The wine remains on its lees for one month with battonage twice weekly. Malolactic fermentation is prevented so that the wine can retain its crisp acidity and fresh primary fruit characters. The wine is fined, filtered and bottled and released whilst young and fresh.

Food Recommendation

Serve with fresh seafood, grilled fish, salads, or drink on its own as an aperitif.
