2020 Blanc de Cinsault
Ancient Vine, Organic
In 2020, we were offered the rare opportunity for additional grapes from this 135 year-old Bechthold Vineyard. We jumped at the chance and made this small unique lot of Blanc de Cinsault. We whole cluster pressed the Cinsault red grapes to make a white wine.
This 135 year old vine Cinsault is the oldest surviving Cinsault vineyard in the world. It is a story of survival. This vineyard survived phylloxera (it is own rooted in sandy soil) and droughts (it is a drought tolerant grape). Enjoy this unique white wine from a very special place.
