Salamandre 2022 Rouge

PRODUCER INFO
  • Château Saint Cyrgue is located in the south of France near Nimes. It is one of the most southerly vineyards in the Rhône valley.
  • Mistral winds blow throughout the year and the southern exposure of the estate allows the grapes to ripen well giving the wine its racy and fine character.
  • Fruit comes from south-facing terraces with soil made up of clay and pebbles deposited by the Rhône river.
  • Certified organic since 2014.
ABOUT THE WINE
  • Organic fruit and native yeast. Temperature controlled tanks during all vinification.
  • Harvested in mid-September in the early morning. Cool nights refresh grapes and help maintain zesty, fresh fruit aromas.
  • Naturally produced with no added sulfites.
  • Serve with grilled red meat or rack of lamb.
