Mas des Restanques Vacqueryas Rouge
- Low stock - 2 items left
PRODUCER: The history of Mas des Restanques began in 1995, with the union of two family terroirs. Joining forces as two knowledgeable winemaking families, both with long-term heritages in the Rhone region, Jean-Luc and Josiane Faraud launched their own winery in 2007.
VINEYARD: In the heart of Southern France, at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail, the estate is divided on nine hectares between two noble appellations: Vacqueyras and Gigondas. In 2012, Mas de Restanques was certified organic by ECOCERT.
WINEMAKING: The grapes are manually harvested and then destemmed. Syrah (15%), Mourvedre (15%) and Grenache (70%) are vinified separately with a traditional fermentation over 30 days, with regular punching down, pumping over and daily batonnage. The wine is then aged in concrete tanks before bottling.
TASTING NOTE: Intensely garnet in colour. On the nose, aromas of garrigue,
spice and black fruits develop. On the palate it is dense with hints of jam, ripe fruit and spices.
Also available in Magnum format.
