"Polished, supple tannins support the black cherry, red plum and wild raspberry notes of this juicy red, with savory touches of mineral and herb on the clean finish. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2022. 35,000 cases made, 10,000 cases imported." – GS
From the Winery:
Art de Vivre pays tribute to the Mediterranean way of life, its unspoilt nature and its artists. Its unique natural pottery bottle evokes the first amphoras. Made from iconic southern French grape varieties, this wine is an invitation to celebrate a wine region two thousand years old, bearing witness to a civilisation and a living heritage of rare beauty.
Vinification and Aging:
A slow ripening process and late harvesting (end September to mid-October) are the secrets to achieving ripe, healthy and concentrated fruits. It also helps with the color and aromas extraction during the fermentation and maceration. The grapes are harvested by hand and taken to the winery in trays, then de-stemmed and placed in stainless steel vats for the maceration process lasting 20 to 25 days. The wines are then racked and aged in French oak barrels for 8 months.
