l’Octavin VdF Grenabar 2017
'Lately we have been noticing hints of grenadine in wines from some of our winemakers and this one is no exception.
The incredibly energetic Alice drives around France sourcing grapes from some of the very best organic and biodynamic producers, in this case Remi Poujol from the Languedoc. She was able to buy both Grenache and Carignan.
When we visited her in 2018 the final blending had not been carried out but she had macerated the whole bunch Grenache for two weeks and the Carignan was direct pressed.
She fermented them together is a steel tank – the fermentation was quite slow, but the final result is a beautiful wine of character and charm.'
