Abbotts & Delaunay Alto Stratus Carignan, Vin de France, 75cl

Regular price £18.95

Carignan is a great grape variety for hot, dry climates, yielding wines full of harmony and elegance. The grapes for this dark, brooding red came from two distinct terroirs: high-altitude vineyards which are populated by 100-year-old vines and arid Mediterranean soils where the vines grow alongside the shrublands known as the garrigue. The grapes are hand-picked, with 60% vinified as whole bunches while 40% undergo a traditional vinification. The wines are racked at the end of alcoholic fermentation and are transferred to French oak barrels, 30% new, where they undergo malolactic fermentation and are aged for nine months. The nose shows herbaceous notes with hints of rhubarb, liquorice, gingerbread and pear, the palate is creamy, with fruity notes reminiscent of sour cherry flan.
