Mastering the nuances of Southern French varietals and combining traditional and modern winemaking techniques, Xavier Roger wines are a superb example of the quality that are now being produced in the South of France. Using the best parcels in the area, the quality of the range is truly outstanding.
Purple red with lovely aromas of blackberry and vanilla. Dense and velvety, intense red berries and a lingering finish.
Enjoy with a homemade hamburger and french fries.
Made from a vineyard of 80 year old Carignan vines grown on prime high altitude vineyards, the grapes are harvested mainly by hand, and the red grapes fermented in tank using a combination of de-stemmed and whole bunch grapes; ferment uses only natural yeasts, with a longer and cooler ferment to extract good colour, enhanced fresh flavours and to ensure the dark fruit and acidity of the Carignan grape is held within the wine. After ferment, the wine benefits form a little press wine added, before settling and racking into tank.
