Rich, clean yet with a crisp freshness
Cuvée: Melina Rouge
Grape Varieties: Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault, Carignan
Bush vines. Manual harvest. Native yeast. No additions. Fermented in tank, 1 year in old oak.
Soil: Sandstone, "shimmering" limestone, mollusc shells.
Climate: The temperature difference between day and night (15-35 degrees), plus cold air from the Cevennes mountains also helps to keep the wine fresh. Winds, including the Mistral, help cool the vines. The sea is 40-50km away, adding salinity.
