This Carignan Blanc vineyard is planted in the village of Tarerach at 550m altitude on granitic sand soils. Rooted between the high peaks of the Pyrenees and the flats of the Vallée de la Têt that meet the sea, the specific block of vines face the Dragon Roc, a natural rock formation atop the Crête de Serrabonne.
Grapes are hand-picked late into the harvest, a month later than other white varieties of the Roussillon. A very long and slow fermentation with lengthy lees contact without stirring. Malolactic fermentation. No fining. In the words of the winemaker, ‘this is a wild wine, made in a shed in the hills of the Roussillon. Expressive, floral and vibrant. Citrus fruit flavours combine with a subtle herbal twist and minerality through to the finish.
Freshly picked and fermented Frappato grapes are blended with ultra-ripe Nero d'Avola that have dried on the vine to provide a delightful "Appassimento" style red - rich, savoury and a real crowd-pleaser.
Merlot, Tannat, Cabernet and a touch of Syrah. A delightful surprise! a red fruity bouquet, loads of strawberries and cream, crisp and fresh, toasty biscuity finish.
The wine is a blend of Ugni Blanc, Colombard, Gros Manseng, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, and Folle Blanche
An attractive floral nose (acacia) showing ripe tropical fruit flavours with herbaceous undertone. On the palate the tropical fruit flavours are balanced by a fresh acidity which runs through to the finish.
A very expressive nose showing exotic fruits (mango, passion fruit, lychee).On the palate fresh and fruity with a hint of minerality.
