Salamandre 2022 Orange

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
  • A lighter orange wine. 10 days on skins give this Grenache Blanc a gentle character and body.
  • Late August harvesting at night and early morning. Cool nights refresh grapes and help maintain zesty, fresh fruit aromas.
  • Organic fruit and native yeast. Temperature controlled tanks during all vinification.
  • Great as an aperitif. Pair with chorizo cake, eggplant lasagna, ratatoutille, and fish.
