Les P’tits Galets red – IGP Gard
Our red wine IGP Gard : Les P’tits Galets
This wine is a Shiraz, Marselan and Merlot blend. The Marselan is a French varietal that is a cross between Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Selected plots in the “Vin de Pays” production area now called I.G.P. The vines grow on clay and limestone soils.
De-stemmed, crushed and fermented with regular pump overs (two daily over peak fermentation) to extract colour, flavour and tannins. After 3 weeks ‘on skins’ the fermenters are drained off and the skins pressed. The wine is aged for 3 to 9 months.
