Banyuls Rimage Terra Vinya 2020
Languedoc - Roussillon - Banyuls Rimage
Lovely intense garnet red hue according to the age.
Complex aromas of fruit (overripe Morello cherries) and flowers (violets), some touches of spice (cinnamon) with an unusual hint of iodine.
Showing great freshness with a nice balance between sugar, alcohol and acidity. Soft tannic structure characteristic of this schist terroir. Mineral and saline notes on the finish.
Recommended food pairing: Cold chocolate fondu with toasted brioche
Serving temperature: 17-18 °C.
Ageing potential: over 5 years.
The harvest is carried out by hand. The grapes are picked when very ripe with over 15% potential alcohol.
The hillsides are made up of very old and very poor shallow schist soil.
The bunches are de-stemmed and crushed. A long maceration is carried out to encourage the development of the aromas and the extraction of the tannins.
The wine is aged for 8 months in vats in a reductive environment. After bottling and before its release for sale, the wine undergoes another 3 months of ageing.
