About

Passage du Sud, meaning "On it's way South"... is a tribute to the migrating birds which are leaving behind the cold season to reach warmer Mediterranean places.

Vermentino is a late ripening Mediterranean grape variety, well-suited to hot, sunny and dry climatic conditions. To craft this distinctive and beautifully balanced white, the winemakers selected rough terroirs located in the Eastern part of the Pays d’Oc appellation. There, the vines are widely sun-exposed and tempered by cooling sea breezes.

The grapes are harvested early in the season. After a gentle pneumatic pressing, with extraction of the premium juices only, the juice is clarified prior to fermentation. The temperature controlled fermentation (16 to 18°C) occurs in stainless steel tanks. The malolactic fermentation is stopped to preserve the freshness in the wine. The resulting wine is aged for 4 months on its fine lees with regular stirring before bottling.
