Ripe and juicy Gamay from the South West of France. Plum and berry, with warm spices and lively acidity.
TERROIR IGP | Comte Tolosan. Vineyards are located in the Adour and Garonne River basins, between the Atlantic Coast to the west and the Massif Central mountains to the east, with mainly alluvial soils. The climate is predominantly maritime, with mild, fresh summers and cool, wet winters. A small proportion of fruit is selected from vineyards further east that experiences a hotter, continental climate.
VINTAGE | Whilst Comté Tolosan covers a large vineyard area, at the most, picking for the 2021 vintage was early across the regions due to the drought experienced in the region. Despite low yields, the crop was extremely good resulting in a wine with a higher concentration of fruit characters and a juicy and complex aromatic profile.
WINEMAKING | Picked at optimum ripeness to enhance the bright flavours but a balanced acidity. The fruit is destemmed, sorted and transferred into open top fermenters for a period of cold maceration to extract colour and tannin for 12 days. Temperatures remained controlled at 26°C. The juice is drained off the skins and transferred to tank where malolactic fermentation took place. Filtered and bottled. The final alcohol is 14%.
