2021 IGP Pays d'Aude, Auriol 'Carignan 100-Year-Old Vines'

Domaines Auriol is a family-owned winery set up in 1995 by Claude Vialade. This wine is 100% Carignan from two vineyards planted between 1907 and 1920 according to land registry records. The vines are situated on distinctive terraced sites. They are trained as bush vines, producing 3 or 4 clusters per vine where air flow and exposure to sunshine are maximised. The fruit is picked by hand with yields no higher than 25 hl per hectare. Part of the crop is macerated as whole clusters (70%).
