Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes for this wine came from south-facing IGP vineyards in the Pays d’Oc department of Aude, a few miles from the Medieval city of Carcassonne, in the high valleys of the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains. Between the lush mountains & the deep blue Mediterranean Sea, it has an ideal climate for growing grapes. After picking & destemming, the juice is pressed, undergoes maceration and malolactic fermentation, with frequent pumping-over during the process. The wine is fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks & sees no oak.


Interesting Facts
The flower pictured on the Merlot label is Cornflower, which bloom in the fields and vineyards of the Pays d’Oc.
