Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris
Stony, shale alluvial deposits from the quaternary.
Settling of the juice before fermentation. Pressed and then fermented under controlled temperatures (below 20°), then the fermentation is stopped by the addition of pure wine alcohol (mutage).
Matured in large open oak casks to allow contact with the air. The oxidisation that results during the ageing process creates the unique taste known as “rancio”.
