Mont Rocher, Cabernet Franc, Vieilles Vignes, IGP Pays d'Oc, France, 2022
Over the last two decades we’ve been creating wines in the wilds of southern France
Embarking on adventures; exploring, discovering and rediscovering remarkable places and vineyard sites. From the foothills and valleys beneath the iconic Pyrénées, out through the gorges to the coastal areas of the Mediterranean. We’ve journeyed with our friends and exceptional growers, who excel at their craft and have an inherent respect for the land that they and theirs are a part of. It is these people and places that inspire our winemaking. The wines of Terres Fidèles are designed to express the spirit of this extraordinary place - old vine Grenache, Carignan, Malbec, Cinsault, Viognier and more, that are authentically crafted, small batch wines of the wilds.
Grapes are harvested from high altitude, hillside vineyards in the Haute Vallée of Limoux, which sit on rugged limestone rich soils. It is here some our old vine Cabernet Franc is grown and crafted to display purity of fruit and a distinctive 'gout de terroir' (taste of the place).
Picked at their optimal ripeness, in mid September, the grapes are destemmed then crushed. There is a cold pre-ferment maceration for 5 days, before a classical fermentation for 8 to 10 days in stainless steel tank.
No oak ageing
Luscious and mouth-watering, blackcurrant and redcurrant fruit characters. Fresh and vibrant with a twist of nutmeg and clove through to the finish.
Steak, charcuterie, sausages, veal, or roasted chicken.
