2021 Domaine de Pellehaut Rouge
An attractive, deep purple hue at first glance, peppery, fruity aromas and unabashed freshness: harmony is indeed present on the palate, between careful aging that has left the fruit intact and complementary spicy notes. Red fruit and coriander flavors blend beautifully together. A light red wine to be enjoyed with any part of a meal.
Domaine De Pellehaut Gascogne Rouge is from an historic 300 hectare family owned estate, a blend of 30% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Tannat, 10% Syrah, 10% Malbec, 5% Pinot Noir from vines that average 27 years of age. The vineyard is situated on three gently rolling hills. The red varieties are planted on mainly clay-limestone soils but the property also has a proportion of sand and clay, that produces very fine, aromatic whites.
Harvesting is done by machine and each variety is picked and vinified separately. Once at the winery, the grapes are very carefully de-stemmed and lightly crushed, before being transferred to stainless steel vats for the alcoholic fermentation, during which pumping over is done every day. The wines are left in tank to macerate for around ten days, after the alcoholic fermentation is finished. They are then run off and the cap is gently pressed in a pneumatic press. Malolactic fermentation occurs before the wines are blended. Domaine de Pellehaut Gascogne Rouge is fined and lightly filtered before bottling.
