Deep Ruby Red, spicy liquorice of Syrah combines perfectly with the rich fruitiness of Grenache in this vibrant characterful wine, displaying a generous finish.

Domaines Bonfils is a family business that has been growing grapes since 1870. Now in the 6th generation, the business comprises 19 Domaines and Chateaux, 17 of which are in the Languedoc with 1800 hectares of vineyards, making them one of the largest independent grape-grower/wine producers in France. The Capitoul Les Terrasses wines are made from grapes which come from a selection of the vineyards and show the pure expression for the region of the grape varietals.

The various sloping vineyards face predominately South benefitting from the gentle warmth of the rising sun. The vines average 21 years old and are planted on clay and limestone soils. 5000 vines are planted per hectare, conventional viticulture using VSP trellis with drip feed irrigation and sustainable practices produce average yields of 55 hl/ha. The grapes were machine harvested early in the morning during the month of October.

The grapes were fermented separately and then blended. They were destemmed and crushed followed by a short hot maceration lasting 6 hours at 40°C. Fermentation was initiated using cultured yeast in stainless steel tanks and length of fermentation varied from 6 days @ 20°C to 10 days at 24°C, the wine went through 100% malolactic fermentation. A portion of the wine was matured in French oak barrels of varying ages. The wine was filtered and bottled.

A great accompaniment to a rack of lamb, duck breast, game or mature cheeses.
