The Cariño from Mas Des Argunelles is a bright juicy red with notes of red fruits, cherry and fennel. A great easy drinking everyday wine, perfect for taking on a night out!
The grapes comes from an old plot of Carignan located next to the estate, planted in the 1950s.
The harvest is carried out in boxes and the grapes are generally placed in vats in a whole cluster. The years when the roundups are not well-rounded, everyone the bottom of the tank is scraped so as not to extract any vegetation from the stems that would soak in the juice.
Interventions in winemaking are minimal or even non-existent some years.
Ageing takes place in 20 hl ovoid concrete vats for 7 to 8 months. The wine is bottled without fining or filtration in fruit day and moonlight descending. Total sulfite is less than 10mg / litre.
About the domaine:
Frédéric Porro was an aspiring Motorcross rider until an accident left him in a wheelchair. His disability led him to a new passion – wine – after his sister asked him to put together the wine list for he restaurant. From that moment on, he became devoted to the grape. Mas des Agrunelles came about from his collaboration with Stéphanie Ponson – owner of Mas Nicot – in 2005 near Murles in Languedoc.
Stéphanie et Frédéric met in 1999 while studying enology in Montpellier. The name of the estate comes from the fact that there are a lot of wild sloe trees around the vineyards and sloe is ‘Agrunelles’ in old occitan. The couple make wine with the same diligance and passion as other biodynamic winemakers have before them, such as Didier Barral and Olivier Julien. It all began with experimentation, trial and error- but they quickly moved from organic vines to a fully functioning biodynamique vineyard and winery. They are proud to produce natural wines of high quality.
