Cami del Drac, Carignan Blanc 2022


Tasting Note

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.
