Freestyle Rouge

Freestyle Blanc Cabernet Franc
A range off the beaten track
Figure Libre Freestyle is the name given to an ambitious range of wines designed to shake up conventions and break new ground for expressing the inherent style of Languedoc and Roussillon. Turning its back on appellation rules, it favours freedom of choice in terms of varietal range, both single varietals and blends. Figure Libre Freestyle reflects a desire to think outside the box and bring together grape varieties that would otherwise never have met in the same bottle.

Tasting Notes: 

Ruby red with some purple highlights. Vibrant, expressive nose of red and black fruits, pepper, spice and “garrigue”. A full bodied wine, with an expansive mouthfeel, integrated tannins and a long, silky finish.

Vinification process: 

Hand Picked
Grape sorting
De-stemmed
Berry selection
Gravity fed to the vats
Traditional vinification without added sulphur in stainless steel vats with temperature control from 10 to 30 days according to varieties and terroirs.
