            [Notes2] => Le Chemin des Fonts comes from a single 2ha vineyard above the village of Saint Gervais on the western side of the Rhône River in the département of the Gard. The parcel sits at 220m altitude and the soil is made up of a very complex structure of loess, sand, loam and clay over limestone. The climate is Mediterranean with hot summers and mild winters. Rainfall is approximately 750mm annually. The age of the vines ranges from 36 years on average for the Grenache to 70+ years for the Carignan. Farming is organic and harvesting is done by hand.

            [WineMakingNotes] => 85% of the bunches are destemmed and lightly crushed whilst the remaining 15% are added whole bunch. Alcoholic fermentation is acrried out at low temperatures and extraction is achieved by short, daily pump overs. Malolactic fermentation and further ageing for 12 months takes place in 228 litre French oak barrles and 600 litre French oak demi-muids.

                    [Notes1] => A nine hectare property founded in 2016 and owned by Simon Tyrrell, Charles Derain and Gerard Maguire. Their organically farmed 
vineyards are aged between 30-70 years old and situated in the hills above the village of Saint Gervais in the northern part of the Gard. The altitude, sandy soils, surrounding forests and exposure to the Mistral, help bring freshness to the grapes. In the cellar, the approach depends on the parcels and the vintage with full crushing and de-stemming for some plots and partial de-stemming for others. Only indigenous yeasts are used and alcoholic fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks and generally below 25°. Ageing takes place in tank for Alizé and demi-muid and 228 litre barrels for Suroit and Chemin des Fonts.

                    [Notes4] =>  Les Deux Cols is Simon & Emma Tyrrell’s own wine producing business, run in collaboration with
Charles Derain. This is a hands-on winemaking venture from grape to bottle with the aim being to
make the type of wines that reflect their passion for balance, elegance and freshness whilst also
expressing the power of the South.
Using grapes that have been hand harvested from vineyards within the commune of Signargues and
Rochefort du Gard, to the south west of Avignon, they make three separate cuvées, each of which is made in significantly
different ways. Cuvée d’Alizé, which makes up 85% of the production, is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. The
Grenache and Cinsault come from the slopes of the commune on lighter, sandier soils whilst the Syrah comes from the plateau of
clay over limestone and a surface covering of quartz stones. After harvest they prepare a millefeuille in stainless steel tanks of
layers of crushed and de-stemmed fruit, interspersed with layers of whole bunches. They then ferment at cool temperatures (22-
27°C) with extraction via pumpovers and cap submersion. Once alcoholic fermentation has almost finished, the grapes are
pressed, the wines re-assembled with both the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations finished in tank. The wine then overwinters
in tank before being bottled without filtration or fining in spring.
The Cuvée Suroit is made from 100% Syrah grown in an organic vineyard on a sandy soil at the bottom of the slopes under the
village of Estézargues. After harvest the grapes are transferred into stainless steel tanks with 30% of bunches left whole and the
rest de-stemmed. They then undergo a semi-carbonic maceration in order to extract the beautiful blackcurrant and black olive
aromas without extracting too much tannin. Post fermentation the wine remains in tank until it is bottled the following spring.
The newest addition is the Cuvée Zephyr made from 100% Roussanne grown in an organic vineyard in the commune of Rochefort du Gard. 
                    [Notes5] =>  The grapes are directly pressed and then juice is then fermented in 228 litre barrels, none of which were new. It did both its alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in wood and was bottled in June 2015.

                    [Notes4] =>  Les Deux Cols is Simon & Emma Tyrrell’s own wine producing business, run in collaboration with
Charles Derain. This is a hands-on winemaking venture from grape to bottle with the aim being to
make the type of wines that reflect their passion for balance, elegance and freshness whilst also
expressing the power of the South.
Using grapes that have been hand harvested from vineyards within the commune of Signargues and
Rochefort du Gard, to the south west of Avignon, they make three separate cuvées, each of which is made in significantly
different ways. Cuvée d’Alizé, which makes up 85% of the production, is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. The
Grenache and Cinsault come from the slopes of the commune on lighter, sandier soils whilst the Syrah comes from the plateau of
clay over limestone and a surface covering of quartz stones. After harvest they prepare a millefeuille in stainless steel tanks of
layers of crushed and de-stemmed fruit, interspersed with layers of whole bunches. They then ferment at cool temperatures (22-
27°C) with extraction via pumpovers and cap submersion. Once alcoholic fermentation has almost finished, the grapes are
pressed, the wines re-assembled with both the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations finished in tank. The wine then overwinters
in tank before being bottled without filtration or fining in spring.
The Cuvée Suroit is made from 100% Syrah grown in an organic vineyard on a sandy soil at the bottom of the slopes under the
village of Estézargues. After harvest the grapes are transferred into stainless steel tanks with 30% of bunches left whole and the
rest de-stemmed. They then undergo a semi-carbonic maceration in order to extract the beautiful blackcurrant and black olive
aromas without extracting too much tannin. Post fermentation the wine remains in tank until it is bottled the following spring.
The newest addition is the Cuvée Zephyr made from 100% Roussanne grown in an organic vineyard in the commune of Rochefort du Gard. 
                    [Notes5] =>  The grapes are directly pressed and then juice is then fermented in 228 litre barrels, none of which were new. It did both its alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in wood and was bottled in June 2015.

About this product +

Producer >

An eight hectare property founded in 2016 and owned by Simon Tyrrell, Charles Derain and Gerard Maguire. Their organically farmed vineyards are aged between 30-70 years old and situated in the hills above the village of Saint Gervais in the northern part of the Gard. The altitude, sandy soils, surrounding forests and exposure to the Mistral, help bring freshness to the grapes. In the cellar, the approach depends on the parcels and the vintage with full crushing and de-stemming for some plots and partial de-stemming for others. Only indigenous yeasts are used and alcoholic fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks and generally below 25˚. Ageing takes place in tank for Alizé and demi-muid and 228 litre barrels for Trois Terroirs and Chemin des Fonts.

Viticulture >

Le Chemin des Fonts comes from a single 2ha vineyard above the village of Saint Gervais on the western side of the Rhône River in the département of the Gard. The parcel sits at 220m altitude and the soil is made up of a very complex structure of loess, sand, loam and clay over limestone. The climate is Mediterranean with hot summers and mild winters. Rainfall is approximately 750mm annually. The age of the vines ranges from 36 years on average for the Grenache to 70+ years for the Carignan. Farming is organic and harvesting is done by hand.

Winemaking >

85% of the bunches are destemmed and lightly crushed whilst the remaining 15% are added whole bunch. Alcoholic fermentation is acrried out at low temperatures and extraction is achieved by short, daily pump overs. Malolactic fermentation and further ageing for 12 months takes place in 228 litre French oak barrles and 600 litre French oak demi-muids.
