Region: Ardeche

Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc / Carignan

"1 ½ day of maceration, destemmed Carignan in the juice of Sauvignon Blanc. The following fermentation in barriques in our cellar for nearly 3 years, no soutirage (racking) all fermentation has been on the yeast (sur lie). Bottled the 2nd of July 2020." - Anders

A very light red wine, normally we prefer to do much longer macerations, but Carignan is a very sensible grape and can fast give too many tannins and lose its elegance. Therefore we made the decision of a short maceration. After décuvage the juice has been fermenting in barriques witch adds to the wine a style of flavours as in classical red burgundy wine.- Anders again
