FIELD BLEND

VALLIGUIERES, RHÔNE, FRANCE

NATURAL

13.5% ABV

Every year as harvest progresses, Lori selects a few cases of grapes from each of his vineyards on the day they're picked, and throws them into one big tank, La Partouze (mind how you go looking up the translation of that one). Sometimes added in as whole bunches, sometimes pressed directly to top up the juice in the tank- Lori makes the call on the day, the tank slowly fills whilst harvest continues.  

He lets the tank ferment slowly at a low temperature for 6 weeks, before it's pressed back to concrete for ageing. The finished wine- a dizzying blend of all 13 of Lori's varieties.

Lori Haon started farming 15 hectares in Valliguières in the Gard in 2015.  A young winemaker who trained in Burgundy, Alsace and Champagne. Lori is committed to a respectful approach to his terroirs, without the use of chemical and synthetic products or weedkiller. His wines are vinified without the use of sulphites.
