Chateau Unang La Source 2016 AOC Ventoux

Chateau Unang La Source 2016
AOC Ventoux, Red organic wine

Grapes: Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault. Yields of 25 hl/hectare, hand-harvested.

Tasting: blackcurrant defines this wine. The nose is both floral (iris and violets) and marked by black fruits. The taste is more reminiscent of crème de cassis, with sufficient concentration that brings amplitude and roundness. It feels a complete wine.

Terroir: the highest vines (350m altitude) of Unang are used for reds. This wine brings together the sweetness of Grenache produced on our sandy soils supporting the concentration of Syrah flourishing on our limestone/clay parcels at the top of the hill, which benefit from better exposure.

Vinification: this wine’s intensity leads to the majority of it being aged in barrels (225 litres) after a traditional fermentation and a small portion of the Syrah has had carbonic maceration.

Notes: serve at room temperature. To drink from 2018, can be kept 7+ years. Enjoy with a leg of lamb roasted with thyme.
