Sainte-Victoire Provence Rouge
Certified Organic. The Sainte Victoire Cru only applies to red and rosé wines. The blend is 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache. Aged for 8 months in neutral oak barrels (4 to 7 years old.) There are only 24 wineries in the Sainte Victoire appellation, so this wine represents a special micro-climate within Provence. The terroir is limestone with some iron through and the vines grow at the base of the Sainte Victoire Mountain. It has nice density while being fruit forward, with a delicate freshness.
