Producer : Chateau des Sarrins
The name Domaine des Sarrins derives its origin from the word "Sarrasins". In the 11th Century, a Saracen chief was killed during one of the many local raids and was buried nearby-according to local
legend “clad in his golden armor”. After their withdrawal, the name has, over time, been shortened to "Les Sarrins". Located in the Var, near Lorgues, the Domaine des Sarrins vineyard covers 25 hectares
spanning the hills of the village of Saint Antonin du Var. The vineyards are at an altitude of 250 to 300m and the soil from the tertiary period is mainly composed of gravelly limestone with some clay. The climate is Mediterranean, but altitude can favour frosts not only in winter but until late April. This altitude also creates a good day / night thermal amplitude: it is common in August, to see 33°C in the daytime and 15°C at night.
Since its acquisition in 1995, the vineyards have been cultivated organically: no weed killer is used but ploughing, and natural methods are employed against pests. The vineyard is certified "Organic".
Cinsault and Grenache account for almost two thirds of the blend; the remaining third being made of Syrah, Mourvèdre.
The direct pressing, with our last generation pneumatic press is slow and delicate. The juice yield is limited to 60% in order to retain only the purest, and to get a tint of a clear bright pink. The juice is protected by a layer of inert gas at all stages to prevent oxidation and protect the most delicate aromas, reducing to a minimum any sulphur doses. Vinification is in stainless steel tanks at a moderate temperature and then cooled to avoid malolactic conversion and thus keep an attractive freshness.
Appearance : pale pink in colour, pale rose petals, bright and clear.
