Essentielle Syrah

Essentielle Syrah

I.G.P Méditerranée - Vin Biologique Carl et Sophie Mestdagh - Harvester Owners

Grape variety : Syrah 100%

Terroir : Clay and limestone

Vinification : The red wines of the Domaine are vinified in parcels.

In 2020 the harvest of the parcels concerned was spread out between September 17 and October 5.

The major part of the vintage was destemmed, crushed, vatted without sulfite and cold-macerated for about ten days.

During the vinification, we only proceeded to light pumping over to orient the Essentielle on a maximum of suppleness. For the same reason, the devatting is done shortly after the end of fermentation. The press juices were separated and aged separately with other more concentrated Syrah presses, then partially incorporated into the final blend.

The maturation of the final blend was carried out exclusively in stainless steel tanks.

Several rackings were carried out before bottling, which took place in three stages between spring and summer 2021.
