Production

Harvested from Grenache Gris. Skin fermented (naturally) until dry. The wine was then pressed and matured in 400 litre Ceramic eggs for 7 months.

Tasting notes

Considering the skin contact fermentation here, it takes a great deal of skill to produce a wine with such clarity and brightness. Beautifully pale pink in colour, the palate is initially one of fresh strawberries before a very smart pithy finish.

Food match

Pairs beautifully with a sunny evening in the garden but if you want food to go with it pork with a fennel crust would be a delight.
