From the producer:

 

Blend

Grenache – based wine blended with Shiraz, Cinsault and Mourvèdre. The grapes are organically grown.

 

Terroir

Different types of terroirs can be found in the Côtes du Rhône appellation : stony soils or clay and limestone subsoil. The maximum yield for this appellation is 51 hl/ha.

 

Winemaking

The wine is made following the principles of organic vinification (ex : less sulfites, limited use of additives…). The grapes are de-stemmed, crushed and fermented with regular pump overs (two daily during peak fermentation) to extract colour, flavour and tannins. After 3 weeks ‘on skins’ the tanks are drained off and the skins pressed. The wine is then aged in concrete tanks on lees.
