Pedres Blanques

2018

Mostly Grenache from vines of 30-50 years of age planted over granite and schist between 250-300 metres above sea level. Grapes are fermented in whole bunches with wild yeasts and no temperature control in cuve for around a month. The juice is pressed and fed by gravity into old barrels of various sizes where it rests until April. This is slightly lighter on its feet than last year, though still possesses that silken texture and delicate combination of black fruits, minerals, herbs and spice.
