I Can See You From The Other Side of the Valley '19
**ONE BOTTLE PER ORDER**
Anders Frederik Steen makes wine from “grapes and only grapes”. He’s been doing this since 2013. Anders and his family have now settled in the beautiful village of Valvignères in the Ardèche and he grows grapes and makes wine at his friends Jocelyne & Gérald Oustric’s farm, Le Mazel. It is a beautiful spot on the slope of a wide, open valley and the many varieties grown here thrive on a perfect mix of clay and limestone. The vineyards are full of life, having been tended organically for decades.
Anders’ wines are made from red grapes which are either pressed directly or destemmed by hand and white grapes pressed directly in a beautiful old wooden press. Any blending is done during the harvest and the different varieties always ferment together, spontaneously, outside under the open sky. The wines are bottled unfiltered, with no additions and are thoughtful, original expressions of this part of the Ardèche.
Grenache Blanc 60% and Viognier 40%. 13,5% alc. Both varieties pressed for 3-4 days vertically on the wooden pressoir of Mazel. The juice was directly transferred into our oak foudre where the following fermentation took place. We didn’t make any soutirage – we left the wine on the yeast. “I can see on the other side of the Valley” is bottled the 11th of July 2020 with 8-10 grams of residual sugar, wish still is present in the wine – so a little light sweetness.
A white wine with a light sweet expression of exotic fruits and flowers, jasmines, white roses, litchi, almost pineapple-like flavours. All these aromas are followed up by both saltiness and acidity extracted from the skins when the grapes were pressed.
