Named in honour of Felicette, the first cat in space,.
This is an easy drinking white from the Languedoc. Using Grenache Blanc and a little Viognier it’s fresh and fruity.
The grapes are harvested, destemmed and then either hot macerated to extract colour a beautiful dark red colour, and some are cold fermented to get the best possible varietal fruit extraction. The fermentation is then conducted at controlled temperature with gentle pumping overs to extract only the better tannins. The different pressings are then blended before Christmas and are aged in stainless steel tank to preserve fruit and round tannins.
Grenache Noir 90% Syrah 5% Merlot 5%
An elegant supple, succulent and aromatic Grenache Rouge, and a mineral, crisp, and fresh Grenache Blanc, both IGP Pays d’Oc and indigenous to the region. Both have been carefully crafted to be subtle, sassy and food friendly.
A typical modern southern French wine. Good level of acidity, soft tannins, not excessively alcoholic but lots of interest.
Medium-bodied on the palate, soft and juicy.
