2017-C Res Fortes Cotes-du-Roussillon, France (750ml)
A Monthly Wine Club Selection
This charming white blend was crafted from 40-year-old dry-farmed, head-trained vines: Macabeu (60%), Grenache Blanc (20%) and Grenache Gris (20%).
Each lot was whole-cluster pressed and cold-settled for 24 hours before being racked and individually fermented. After fermentation the wine was racked off the lees and left to age in stainless-steel before being blended and bottled. Moritz spent many summer months as a child with his grandfather in the South of France, who would talk for hours with great passion about wine, and even let him try a little. Listening to him, Moritz’s fascination with grapes began and was furthered during winter family ski trips, travelling by train across Europe and seeing the Swiss Alps with its terraced vineyards covered in snow. By the age of 16 he was hooked and began studying Wine Science at Brighton University's Plumpton College, graduating in 2010. Moritz then travelled the world making wine in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. In 2014 Moritz decided it was time to use what he had learned internationally and create his own premiere vintage—which we are delighted to present to you now! This delicious blend shows aromas of tropical fruit, melon and peaches. The palate delivers honeydew, Anjou pear and baked apples and a pineapple core. The texture is beautiful and expansive with a delightfully balanced, delicate yet juicy finish.
