AOP Costières de Nîmes

Details of the wine
The soils are very typical of the appellation with large smooth rolled stones from alluvial deposits from the Rhone and Durance rivers. In summer they heat up during the day and give back warmness during the night. The red clay gives Costières land a coppery tinge and retains the heavy seasonal rains in the underground which irrigates over the year .
The varietals are typical of the appellation : 67% Syrah and 33% Grenache.
Thermovinification: grapes are destemmed and heated. This method allows to extract the flavors and get a very aromatic profile.
This wine presents grenat-red colour with violet tints. Violet and blackcurrant aromas on the nose. With a good structure, this wine shows finesse and harmony.
Can be enjoyed now but can keep for 3 – 4 years.
