Grape Varietal: Trepat
Farming: Organic, Unfined/Unfiltered, No to low added SO2
Dense mineral edge, fresh berry, mountaneous grip; stony, minerally, floral, cherry bursting and fun.
From 75 year old vines planted on two parcels (3 hectares total) in Clay, Calcareous, granitic and stony terroir, the grapes are selected before hand hand harvesting and de-stemmed with attention to preserving whole berries. The grapes are then fermented for 6 weeks in clay amphorae before a two month post-fermentation maceration on the skins. All fermentation period is done on lees with battonage performed weekly.
This is one of my families favorite wine. Flavorful with a silky mouth feel
