40% Grenache, 40% Vermentino, 20% Ugni Blanc

Viticulture and Vinification
The Luberon is one of the most Southerly wine growing area of the Rhône, enjoying a mild Mediterranean climate. The vines flourish due to sufficient irrigation and sunshine. The grapes are night harvested to preserve the aromatic freshness. Then the juices undergo a short skin maceration before pressing to extract the wonderful apricot and pear aromas. It is then fermented at a low and controlled temperature before being matured on fine lees.
