Don't forget these...


VARIETY: Chenin Blanc

TERROIR: Coteaux plots. Dominated by iron rich, red soils. There is lots of quartz in evidence too. For 3 years now, sheep run through the vines over winter to combat erosion and keep the ground mangeable come spring. They plough 100% as soils are very infertile, but stop working the soils earlier to keep the ground temps down as much as possible. Vines from the 1980s. Certified organic.

HARVEST: hand picked

VINIFICATION: Direct press and aged in concrete. Wine that was kept for 1 year in concrete after fermentation. '22 was a very juicy year so they were able to justify this experiment of aging wine like this for the first time. 13% ABV, 60ml/l total SO2. Unfiltered.
