Ex-chef, NOMA alumni, Danish ex-pat; Anders now makes wine with his family in the Ardèche. His wines have developed a cult-following for their honest expression of this part of the world, where vineyards have been tended organically for decades.
The destemmed Raisins de Table and Grenache Blanc were macerated in the pressings of Syrah, for 6 weeks. After maceration the grapes were pressed for 3 days in small and press. The following fermentation took place in barriques for almost 11 months without racking. All fermentation and elevage on gross lees until bottling in August 2020.
Light red wine with a very solid expression. Many things are going on, on an aromatic level. Both Muscat and Grenache Blanc are very easily recognized. But the wine needs to be drunk when the bottle is opened, it’s not a wine to be served by the glass. - Notes from Anders
