The Château Saint Cyrgues estate is located in the South of France, near Nîmes. It faces the Petite Camargue, one of the most beautiful sites in France, and the Mediterranean Sea. The estate is over a hundred years old, but keeps up with the times as it is certified organic.
The winery was established on the site of the ruins of Saint Cirice des Marges church. Nothing is left of the old priory now but the estate has a rich past life and many people have travelled and given life to this soil. As in the whole Rhone Valley the mistral blows throughout the year really helping the vines grow. One of the most southerly vineyards in the Rhone Valley.
Vinification: Grenache Blanc 2/3 whole bunch, crushed and fermented, 1/3 destemmed, crushed and macerated for 10 days on skins. So a lighter orange wine. Native yeast fermentation, matured in stainless steel then mixed together before bottling. Unfined and unfiltered. No added Sulphur.
A little bit floral on the nose with flavours of peach and summer fruits on the palate. If you are new to Orange wine this really is one of our top recommendations to ease you in
Try with a saucy Moroccan-spiced lentils, one pan Mediterranean chicken with roasted red pepper sauce, spicy crab pasta or beetroot burgers with sweet potatoes wedges…
