Les Halos de Jupiter Gigondas Rouge
Succulent black plum and mulberry are accented by raspberry, tea leaf and anise perfume in this juicy, mouth-filling red. It's gorgeously primary now but should develop spicy, smoky complexities with time. Fine tannins lend upright structure
The grapes are neither destemmed nor crushed. Fermentation by native yeasts with no addition of SO2. Gentle extractions by manual “pigeage” at 28°C (82°F) for about 5 weeks. The Grenache and the Mourvèdre are blended after malolactic fermentation and aged demi-muid for one year. This wine was neither fined nor filtered before bottling in order to preserve its personality and intensity.
Fermented with native yeast.
