A sweet and rich wine with concentrated flavours, desert wine is made from grapes that have a high sugar content at harvest. Another technique is mutage: fermentation is stopped, when the must has reached the desired residual sugar content, by adding a neutral brandy (e.g. Port and Vin Doux Naturels). Banuyls, Muscat, Jurançon, Maury, Gewürtztraminer, sweet Gaillac, Pineau des Charentes, Sauternes, Monbazillac, cider... the choice is vast!
Made from organically grown grapes, natural wine aims to find the expression of a terroir, far from formatted and conventional practices. By rejecting the use of chemicals, the winemaker "natural" , sensitive to the respect of its environment, makes a living and free wine. Natural wines, natural wines, organic wines...whatever the name, the main principles are there: the will for all the selected winegrowers to offer wines in an organic or even biodynamic spirit. Grapes often harvested by hand, vintages with little or no added sulphite, wines made with a maximum of indigenous yeasts,... Respect for authenticity, for nature and for your health!
