"Cherry Season" 🍒 

 

Axel Prüfer is known for crafting spectacular easy-drinking wines that are packed full of character and freshness despite his vineyards being situated in some of the most inhospitable soils around.

 

An easy-going light bodied wine, filled with a load of red berries and a little bit of vanilla spice. Vibrant and alive, this is a super glou for sure!

 

Give it a go served chilled.

 

Sustainable organic fruits, no added sulfur, completely vegan and veggie-friendly.

Importer's notes:

"Equal parts Grenache Noir, Carignan and Cinsault planted on limestone. The grapes were macerated in whole bunches for 15 days before being pressed off to cuve for a 9 month élevage. With a beautiful perfume and elegant structure, this is one of our favourite wines of the release.

 

Based in the hills just north of Béziers, deep in the Languedoc, Axel has been at the forefront of the natural wine scene in France for nearly two decades. Despite farming vineyards in some of the most inhospitable parts of the region, where rainfall is almost nonexistent throughout the year, he produces seemingly weightless wines that carry a wealth of character.

 

The 2019 vintage was a welcome relief for Axel after a very challenging 2018 when he lost over half of his grapes to disease and wild boar. Although the boar did have a good go at his Chardonnay once again (seemingly this happens every year) the harvest was bountiful and the wines are drinking wonderfully."
