Mas des Colibris Prima
Grapes: Syrah, Grenache
Mas des Colibris is a biodynamic domaine in the Causse d'Aumelas region of Languedoc run by former professional rugby player Sebastien Galtier. Sebastien has 12 hectares in total, all farmed organically since 1999 and surrounded by olive groves, pine forest and scrubland. Grapes are hand-harvested, fermented with indigenous yeasts and Sebastien uses biodynamic preparations to stimulate the biological life of the soil and strengthen the vine and its natural defences.
Prima is a crunchy, juicy 50-50 blend of Syrah and Grenache made without sulphur. Perhaps the most 'natural' tasting of Sebastien's wines, with bright strawberry, cherry and cranberry aromas and a pleasant savouriness on the palate.
