Country of Origin: France

The Aude Valley, stretching between Carcassonne and the Pyrenées in extreme south of France is similar in climate and Limestone soil to the Loire Valley. The high altitude and cool evening breeze create wines with varietal character, acidity and freshness.

Tasting N​otes:

Very pale pink in colour, sitting well within the classic Provence “pale and dry” spectrum. The nose is aromatic and sweetly perfumed with aromas of strawberries and rose petals. The palate is a revelation compared to previous vintages, elegant and effortless with light berry and candied fruit drop flavours lingering long on a soft, dry finish.

Made solely from Syrah that completely whole bunch fermented with a short maceration (a few hours) sufficient to impart colour and texture. Following a soft pressing, the juice is given a cool fermentation in stainless steel and allowed to ferment to almost complete dryness. Maturation on lees in stainless steel adds texture and malo-lactic fermentation is prevented to ensure vibrancy.
