Grenache Blanc 60% and Viognier 40%. 13,5% alc. Both varieties pressed for 3-4 days vertically on the wooden pressoir of Mazel. The juice was directly transferred into our oak foudre where the following fermentation took place. We didn’t make any soutirage – we left the wine on the yeast. “I can see on the other side of the Valley” is bottled the 11th of July 2020 with 8-10 grams of residual sugar, wish still is present in the wine – so a little light sweetness.
A white wine with a light sweet expression of exotic fruits and flowers, jasmines, white roses, litchi, almost pineapple-like flavours. All these aromas are followed up by both saltiness and acidity extracted from the skins when the grapes were pressed.
