Description: A light but deeply expressive bottling of Carignan from old vine, long uncultivated plantings of Carignan! The story of this fruit is almost unbelievable. The grapes are from 80-year-old Carignan plantings that were abandoned over 40 years ago yet continued to grow and crop without human aid. The grapes now grow along with native vegetation, reaching up trees and shrubs and interlaced with local grasses.

The vines have been growing without any farming for decades, thriving in the wild conditions. No pruning or training, no irrigation, no pesticides, nor tilling. All hand-harvested grapes, some from bunches growing meters of the ground hanging from trees. The grapes are crushed but not pressed, only the free-run juice is used. Fermented spontaneously with native yeasts and aged neutral French oak. Unfined, unfiltered, and with only minimal s02 at bottling.

Bright and intense ruby-red wine. Nose with a hint of wild blackberry and elegantly defined maqui berry. Delicate, soft and round tannins on the palate with a food-friendly acidity bearing traces of cherry and strawberry
