Specificity: A very thin limestone layer, a unique thing in the Costieres de Nîmes region, goes through the RFV block, creating that fresh feeling this wine offers on the pa- late, while being still powerful.
Blend: this first vintage 2018 is made out of 90% Syrah and 10% Grenache.
Vinification: Hand harvest. The grapes are fully destemed. Fermentation for about 9 days at 26-27°c, then 28- 29°c when the fermentation ends. Very short pump overs, 3 to 5 minutes, about 3 to 4 times/day.
Objective: enhancing the power, while keeping that fresh finish (slightly minty). Macération post-fermentation for 10 to 15 days on skins to define the wine’s final structure
Ageing: 12 months in oak barrels. Those barrels are not flame heated but steam heated. This type of barrels avoid giving a oaky/toasted taste to the wine. The steam technic preserves the wine’s freshness and help enhancing minerality.
