O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2020
Its full and fat body on the palate gives it remarkable elegance. The complex aromas of black fruit (black olives and blackberry) derive from the carefully controlled extraction process during vinification. The rich and fleshy bouquet of aromas persists in revealing touches of roasted coffee, blackcurrant and prunes.
The Minervois region has always been a pole of attraction as a testimony to historical monuments, as famous as the Château de Minerva. The soils, dating from the Eocene era, cover the stone, essentially the schist slopes of Montagne Noir. All the grapes are harvested by machine to ensure that the fruit reaches the winery quickly and in good condition. After total destemming, Syrah is vinified in concrete tanks to help express its individual quality. After bottling, the wine is stored for several months before being marketed.
At Vineyard Productions we offer a unique set of services that take us beyond the domains of being a traditional wine supplier. We deliver a style of wine consulting that positively benefits the wineries we represent, the markets we serve, the customers we offer and the enthusiasts and consumers who want to be at the forefront of wine trends. From the very beginning at the production level, our team of winemakers helps producers to develop exciting and sought-after wines. From there, our brand management team creates strong marketing, branding and packaging plans to give visibility to products in a saturated market. It is then the task of our sales team to create personalised distribution and sales strategies for each of the wines we represent. As a versatile business, we also seek to develop and build on trends within the wine industry. This means we can create wine brands from scratch, based on our knowledge of what consumers are looking for. Acting in this way means that the wines we create are desirable for consumers and therefore stand out in wine lists and fly off the shelves. The majority of this wine list is made up of wines that we produce, together with a handful of wineries that we represent in the international market, wineries that we believe to be exceptional and whose stories we are very proud to tell. Vineyard Productions is a company rich in ideas, talent and enthusiasm, focused on providing excellence in everything we offer.
