Touraine Gamay-Malbec, La Java des Grandes Espérances

Touraine Gamay-Malbec, La Java des Grandes Espérances

A blend of about 80% Gamay and 20% Malbec; the Gamay supplies a soft, fruity aspect to the wine, whilst the Malbec complements this with darker richer fruit and a note of spice. The crushed grapes undergo a cold maceration for four days prior to the fermentation. The wine is pumped over the cap on a daily basis during the start of the fermentation and micro-oxygenation is carried out during the maturing process. Shows very fruity aromas of strawberry and raspberry; the palate is smooth finishing with a spicy note.
