Mas des Restanques Vacqueryas Rouge Magnum
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.
