2019 Manon Farm Cuvée Selene
This is a blend of Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc
Fermented in large handmade terracotta ‘Huevos’ - an egg shaped fermenter that the grapes are stored in for 6 months. Pressed lightly in the heart of winter after the solstice. Once the lid was removed the whole bunches were still in such pristine condition. Fermentation was very delicate and the berries still whole, pure and full of life. The longer maceration luring in the chalky tannins, creating texture to awaken the taste buds. With its soft fermentation and time in bottle, the fruit is beaming with light and brightness. Selene is the Greek Goddess of the moon. Apt, as Manon spend much of their farming, growing and living life with focus and respect to this glowing orb and the ancient peoples who worked with the Moon in the movements of their life. A wine for when the sun sets.
