Ledoner Pelut, a locally grown mutation of Grenache, is seldom known outside of the region. The fruit is constantly worked on throughout the first two weeks of fermentation, with regular pigeage and remontage. The wine is racked and aged on fine lees in stainless steel for 12 months without fining, filtration, or added sulfites. Maquis has a nose of red currant, blood orange, and black cherry with nutmeg, as well as wild costal herbs and licorice. The structure is elegant, and the palate is ripe, with rounded fruit, long-lasting freshness, and silky tannins.
