Satori by Sophie Héraud – Clos Présent
Satori is a beautifully rounded, well balanced, deep, red wine. It has notes of cherries, chocolate and forest fruits.
It’s made from a mix of 60% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 20% Carignan, which are vinified separately. The Syrah and Grenache grapes are destemmed and crushed, while the Carignan undergoes a 10-day carbonic maceration. They are then aged in stainless steel tanks for 7 months, before being blended for 1 month and bottled.
The Syrah provides sharp, medium tannins, the Grenache contributes that classic red fruit, berry flavour and the Carignan creates balance with spice and acidity that makes your tongue tingle. The result is a bottle that is smooth and extremely tasty. Somewhere between glou glou and a full bodied red. To get the full flavour, we’d recommend decanting.
Sophie Héraud settled in Albas in 2019 and began working on the 3.45 hectares of Clos Présent in 2020. This is her first vintage and the results are already incredible. We are really excited to see what the future holds for this talented natural winemaker.
