Notes from the iconic importers, Living Wines!
The grapes for this wine were purchased from a vineyard in Castelreng which is about 20 kilometres south of Carcassonne in southern France in the Languedoc region. The harvest occurred on 13th September 2020. The grape variety is Mauzac which is a key ingredient of the famous sparkling wines of nearby Limoux (the main grape variety these days is Chardonnay, but Mauzac is still required) and still wines from Gaillac which is further north. The Mauzac was directly pressed without destemming and then left to ferment throughout the winter including going through malolactic fermentation. The fermentation was quite slow, but obviously went through to completion. The resultant wine was bottled on July 1st, 2021 without any additions.
