This nothing less than psychedelic rosè from natural wine bad boy Antony Tortul, sees a huge array of grapes, many relatively unknow to most of us and from old vines in the Languedoc Roussillon. The concoction of grapes include Muscat d’Alexandria, Muscat Petit Grain, Nielluciu, Cardinal, Listan, and Chasselas! The wine uses wild fermentation and, according to the grapes, either direct-pressing or some skin contact in steel, then no intrusive and demeaning fining, filtration or added SO2 before bottling. Gloriously and carnally juicy, lush and crazily fresh: sherbet of pomegranate, tamarind and candied violet petals with smoked rhubarb and cassis.
