Wine Region: Languedoc-Roussillon - France
Grape: Pinot Noir, Cinsault
Tasting notes: This 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Cinsault Cuvee (stemmed and aged in stainless steel vats) is a delight of finesse, fresh fruit and fluidity. A nose of blackberry and aromas of red fruits and a small floral note of rose, tonic and lively on the finish. A real treat, without any input.
About the winery:
Kohki Iwata decided to leave Osaka and start the life of a vigneron in France in 2008. After a few internships, he decided to settle down in 2016 and vinify his wines himself, buying the grapes at Domaine des Soulié where he worked before. Helped by a Japanese company to be able to get started, Wa Sud was created in 2017. The vinified wines are, without inputs, pure juice. The production is low (around 5,000 bottles), and the quality is really there.
