Origin

This Syrah Grande Réserve, selected from among the terroirs of the Pay d’Oc, is classified as a Protected Geographical Indication wine. The Pays d’Oc’s diversity of soils and Mediterranean climate ensure that the harvested grapes will be of high quality with good concentration. The selection of the grapes and the particular care taken during the vinification process allow us to create an elegant, powerful and spicy wine.

Vinification

Made from a blend of wine from traditional vinification and thermo-vinification. The traditional vinification, based on rack- and-return operations followed by pumping-over allows us to gently extract the polyphenolic compounds. The thermo-vinification allows us to optimize the extraction of colour and obtain very fruity wines. The blending enables the wines to smooth out and take on finesse and complexity.

Maison Castel, Touch of France wines, simple, easy to choose and pleasant to taste.
