"Icones" wines

Mas Olivier Expression - White

Origin

Unique plot nested in hilltops, 400 meters above sea level. 100% rich Schists soil. The grapes are selected with love and great care (optimum maturity checks and berry tasting before the hand harvest). Each variety is harvested separately on different dates to insure the best quality and the perfect homogenous blend “expression” of the AOP Faugères terroir 

Grapes

Roussanne 60% , Marsanne 15% , Vermentino 15% , Grenache Blanc 10%.

Winemaking

Early morning hand harvest to keep the natural freshness and aromas of the grapes and also prevent oxidization. Great care at each step, wooden tubs in the vineyard. Gentle juice clarification by means of flotation in the winery. Fermentation process under monitored temperature. Then only the richest and most expressive vats are selected to end the alcoholic fermentation in small French oak barrels (225 liters). 50% of the blend is aged on fine lees for at least 6/7 months, stirred regularly with care. Followed by ageing in the bottle before market launch 

 

Tasting
