Earthy Red #002 14.5% (250ml)

Producer: Les Clos Perdus
Country: France
Grapes: Carignan, Grenache, Mourvèdre

This wine is a blend of the 2020 and 2021 vintage as 2021 was a particularly low-yielding year. The grapes for this blend came from certified organic old vine parcels, some of which are 120 years old, around the small Mediterranean village of Peyriac de Mer. The wine was made with spontaneous fermentation and a low dose of sulphur, and was aged in stainless steel for fourteen months. It was canned without being filtered or fined.

Vintage: 2021
Alcohol: 14.5%
Tasting notes: Bright red fruit offset by a deep, rich earthiness. Medium bodied, dry.
Best served: With or without a chill. Generally food-friendly but would be particularly great with mushroom pizza, red lentil dahl, or lamb.
