Chateau Fontareche Old Vines Corbieres 2021


Estimated delivery between June 19 and June 21.

A gorgeous wine, made with 40% Carignan, 25% Mourv?dre, 30% Syrah and 5% Grenache, showing just what old vines can do when they find themselves in the right soils (in this case limestone terrace overlaid with gravel).

The Carignan grapes undergo semi-carbonic maceration whilst the Syrah and Mourv?dre grapes are destemmed and fermented at a temperature of 28 ? C for 14 days. Malolactic fermentation and ageing takes place in stainless steel to retain freshness of flavour.

The result is rich, juicy and fruit forward with aromas of white pepper, cassis, violets, and sage. Lush and decadent, with a lingering chocolate-raspberry finish.
