TASTING NOTE: The estate of Aquéria employs an impressively complex proprietary process in the creation of their one and only wine. Close to a dozen grapes are grown in cool sandy soils in the largest contiguous vineyard in Tavel. Each red is paired up with a white for co-maceration before fermentation and maturation, never in oak. The result is a complex cornucopia of red fruit and flora that include strawberry, candied cherry, white peach, starfruit, dragon fruit, thyme and rose. Marked by a hot, drought vintage, the 2022 vintage shows more concentration than the norm. Drink now or hold another 2-3 years. Tasted April 2023.
