Grape - Malbec
Where - Cahor, France
What - Combel La Serre source organic Malbec grapes from 35 hectares of vineyard dotted around the town of Cahor.
The grapes are fermented in concrete vessels with the grapes left in whole bunches. After a cold ferment, the juice is aged for 9 months in concrete before bottling with minimal sulphite and zero filtration. Unlike the huge, age-worthy spice bombs that the area is famous for, the Fruit du Causse is a much lighter, fruitier style designed for enjoying young. It is soft and smooth with notes of cassis, damson, myrtle and pink peppercorns.
Soft, fruity, luxurious. Vegan. Organic. Low intervention. 12.5% ABV.
