PRIMA NATURE MERLOTIGP Pays d'Oc MerlotDESCRIPTIONPrima Nature is a range of wines without added sulphur or any other additives. Each wine is unique and expresses all the original character of its fruit and terroir. The wines are grown using sustainable methods and have been awarded Terra Vitis accreditation.TASTING NOTESThis wine boasts a beautifully consistent red colour, with flashes of scarlet. This Merlot is fruity and round, packed with red fruit flavours and subtle hints of spicy.VINIFICATION AND MATURINGOur work begins in the vineyard, with precise and meticulous selection of the plots most suitable for producing this type of wine (90% of the final result depends on this painstaking work): the vines must be in perfect health, with strong, fresh, dense foliage and grapes which have reached optimal maturity. The window for successful harvesting of the fruit is very narrow, the acid/sweetness balance and maturity of the tannins being so crucial to this type of wine. The vinification process for the reds is very traditional, aside from the fact that we do not use SO2, nor any other additive. The grapes are de-stemmed then left to macerate for around ten days. During this time our only extraction work involves pumping over daily to release the full potential of the fruit. The grapes are then pressed, with the presses kept separate, and the wines are then racked in order to remove the coarser lees before malolactic fermentation begins. After fermentation the wines are racked again, then cooled to ensure optimal stability in the vat.∗ FOOD AND WINE PAIRING ∗Serve at 16C with grilled meats and cheeses.
