Opi d'Aqui | Les Cliquets 2020
Origin: France - Languedoc
Grapes: 100% Grenache Noir
Process: The Grenache Noir undergoes whole bunch, cold carbonic maceration for 3 weeks. This is then blended with directly pressed Vermentino. The wine is aged for 6 months in stainless steel tanks. It is bottled without fining or the addition of sulphites to preserve its freshness.
