Alchemy’s 100 Year Old Carignan
The 2018 is sourced from a very special parcel of over 100-year-old vines in Nezingnan l’Eveque (east of Beziers) this “Old Vines Series” release Carignan is a real treat! Large pudding stones cover the vineyard floor; gently warming the fruit, ensuring full ripeness and flavours. A combination of handpicking, extremely low yields, minimal traditional winemaking techniques and time in a combination of America and French oak produces this wine of fantastic concentration.
Rich dark purple/red, the aromas of ripe summer pudding berry fruits and subtle vanilla intensify on the palate. With smooth velvety tannins on the long complex finish adding to the layers of this exceptional high-quality limited wine.
This really envelops the Alchemy story.
