Hand-picked grapes. Gently pressed direct to stainless steel for fermentation using natural yeasts, 10 days on skins. Six months untouched before racking by gravity and bottling. 90% of the grapes comes from the 2019 harvest and 10% comes from the 2018 harvest. The wine is aged for a year in 300L old French oak barrels.
As a result, we get a mineral wine, with an exceptional salinity and freshness, citrus aromas, flint and fennel.
ELS VINYERONS was born with the intention of producing wines from vineyards that we understand have potential to create unique, singular wines. Our aim is to produce wine by letting the vineyard and grapes express what they have inside using the minimum possible intervention.
