Chateau Roc de Candale Description

The grapes come from a 13 ha vineyard planted with 30 year old vines at a density of 6,000 vines/ha. They enjoy a southern exposure. The soil is clay-limestone with a siliceous and clayey subsoil. The manual harvest is conducted according to each plot, grape variety, soil and exposure, and performed as late as possible to ensure optimum ripeness. In the cellar, the grapes are handled with meticulous care with two sorting tables. Carefully managed for each plot, a slow fermentation takes place with indigenous yeast, and without excessive temperature, to make sure that extraction proceeds gently. The château is using state of the art wooden upright tanks. The wine is aged 12 to 18 months in new French oak barrels. 1,200 cases produced. 14 % Alcohol. Deep purple color, lush aromas of cherry and vanillin oak. Good tannic structure and a long, well-balanced finish.
