Reynard Rebels NV
This is a blending of two different vintages - 2017's Merlot and Carignan, and the 2018 Carignan. Both undergo a 5-day whole-cluster fermentation, followed by aging in concrete vat for 1 year. Unfined, unfiltered with a dash of SO2 at bottling.
While the nose is mineral and somewhat spicy, this is a fresh, crunchy red with a delicate smattering of tannin and an irresistible, fruit-forward palate. Strawberry and juicy red cherries, a soft mouthfeel with wonderful acidity.
Grapes: Merlot & Carignan
Region: Provence, France
Selling Format: 750ml
