100% Muscat from the Roussillon in France. The use of skin contact provides the wine with a beautiful wild, floral style and great texture. Domaine Danjou-Banessy uses a single-vineyard approach to winemaking across its 17 hectares of land, using vines with an average age of 60 years. The Estaca vineyard features soils of marl and schist, with silica and a trace of iron.
The wine production method is fully biodynamic and non-interventionist and has been for generations. Whole cluster fermentation and crushing by foot with a 30 day infusion to bring out the right levels of tannin to maintain balance in the wine. The wine is then aged in barrels “Sous Voile” or without topping up the wine meaning some oxidative qualities can be found in the wine such as lightly toasted almond and brioche. All of these factors lead to a delicious wine that is lively, elegant and softly textured.
