Le Campuget Grenache Viognier 2017 - Vin de Pays du Gard

 

Producer Note

Château de Campuget was established in 1942 and is a top quality estate near Nîmes, which is steeped in history. The Château itself was built in 1753 and at the same time the first vines were planted, prompting the 1753 range of wines which mark this historic date. The fusion of tradition and progression unite in the cellars here, producing wines with integrity, finesse and a wonderful expression of terroir, from a wide range of traditional Rhône varieties.

Vineyard

The Vineyard is situated 15 kilometres south of Nîmes, near the village of Manduel, in the heart of the ‘Appellation d’Origine Protégée’ the Costières de Nîmes. The average age of the vines is about 25 years. The main characteristic of the vineyard is the soil, which is formed of ‘gress’, an accumulation of rounded pebbles that have been deposited by the overflowing Rhône River thousands of years ago. These pebbles allow the vines to grow in the best possible conditions and due to this natural soil filter; the vine’s roots can easily draw the necessary water for their growth. The vines also benefit from the Mediterranean sunshine, which bring the grapes to perfect maturity and allows them to be picked at maximum phenolic maturity in early September.

Winemaking

The grapes were cool-harvested at night, then each variety was vinified separately. Fermentation took place at a controlled cool temperature with maximum protection again oxidation. The wines were carefully blended to create this cuvée, which was unoaked to retain its fruitiness.

Tasting Note

Delicate peachy aromas lead to a palate of bright fresh fruit with a hint of spice. A refreshingly crisp wine with a persistent finish.

Serving Suggestion

Ideal with spicy food such as Indian or Thai cuisine.
