Bad lighting, Call you later


This highly original take on Merlot comes from fruit picked alongside the Oustrics at their Domaine du Mazel in Valvignères. The majority of the grapes were pressed directly, whilst a small proportion were destemmed by hand and left to infuse in the fermenting juice for around a month. After pressing, the wine spent a year resting in cuve, before being transferred to a demi-muid for a further year of ageing. The result is a crisp, pale and perfumed wine full of tart cranberries, blood orange and bitter herbs.
