Write a Review

Vintage: 2022

Varietals: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Marsanne

Farming: Organic/Biodynamic, Unfined/Unfiltered, No added SO2

Anders states that 'Hold Me Closer' is the first vinification in an old wooden foudre we got from Alsace. The Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay was pressed for 4 days. When the fermentation was working well it was blended with some Marsanne from 2021.

The following fermentation has taken place during winter and finished slowly in the early spring. The combination of the Ardèche grapes and the Alsace Foudre, have given a unique expression. Rich in fruit and with an almost northern-style acidity.
