VDF Blanc "Sensitive"

2022
France
Languedoc

100% Viognier rendered as an “orange” wine. From certified-organic estate vines just northwest of the ancient city of Nîmes and just south of the Cévennes mountain range. The vines range from 10-30 years old, are planted on varying clay-limestone soils and have a generally eastern exposure. The terrain is flat to moderately hilly, with the vineyards (and cereal fields) surrounded by garrigue and woods.

The Viognier bunches are direct-pressed and fermented with native yeasts and without sulfur in concrete tanks. There is a 15-day maceration with the skins. The wine is aged in concrete tank. It is bottled in clear glass; is unfiltered and unsulfured; and finished dry in 2022 and at around 11%.
