2019 Anders Frederick Steen RDT
Raisins de Table (Muscat blanc, Muscat Noir, Chasselas, Italia, Ribol Noir and Cardinal), Syrah & Grenache Blanc 13,5% alc.
The destemmed Raisins de Table and Grenache Blanc were macerated in the pressings of Syrah, for 6 weeks. After maceration the grapes were pressed for 3 days in small and press. The following fermentation took place in barriques for almost 11 months without racking. All fermentation and elevage on gross lees until bottling in August 2020.
Anders notes "Light red wine with a very solid expression. Many things are going on, on an aromatic level. Both Muscat and Grenache Blanc are very easily recognized. But the wine needs to be drunk when the bottle is opened, it’s not a wine to be served by the glass."
