Salamandre Orange - Château Saint Cyrgues
A gentle entry-level orange wine: 2/3 whole bunch, crushed and fermented, 1/3 destemmed, crushed and macerated for 10 days on skins mixed with native yeast, giving a little minerality and orange blossom floral notes alongside a prominent flavour of juicy peach.
An autumnal gem from one of the Rhône valley's most southern vineyards.
Château Saint Cyrgues is based in the village of Saint-Gilles near Nîmes in the Cotes-du-Rhone where father-son team Jean-Pierre Lefaud and Loic who have carried out their making and growing according to strictly organic principle since they took over the estate in 2015. Rich in history, the winery was established on the ruins Saint Cirice des Marges church where monks held winemaking as a tradition.
With its position between the rocky hills of Provence and the sandy plains at the Camargues mouth of the river Rhône, Saint Cyrgues is blessed with a unique terroir that produces exceptional wines at brilliant value. This accessibility and quality is behind the success of their Salamandre orange wine, which has something of a cult following.
