A blend of the 2006 and 2007 vintages, the Domaine de Sau Rancio Sec is 100% Grenache Gris, harvested by hand from a 1.9 hectare plot of 70 year old bush vines. Fermented with native yeasts in steel tanks and left for a week on its skins. Left to rest in a former horse barn on the Chateau de Sau estate, in old 225 liter Bordelais futs.
The resulting wine reaches 18.5% abv naturally, without fortification; the honeyed texture and high-floral notes of the wine belying its inherent power.
