Mas des Caprices "Anthocyane" Fitou '15

Mirelle and Pierre Mann are Alsatian transplants in the Languedoc-Roussillon, and while they are far away from home, they brought their roots in winemaking with them. The Mann's make wine out of pleasure and passion, while celebrating the lush and abundant Mediterranean and all it has to offer, practicing organically. Originally restauranteurs, they age their wine with balance of food in mind as well as looking to seek balance and enhancement. And in the end, it is about the reward of sharing this excitement with others that they most look forward to with their wines.

This is predominantly old-vine Mourvèdre, supported by Carignan and Grenache from the limestone plateau of the Leucate peninsula in Fitou. This comes from their oldest vine parcels. The wine has softer tannins, great acidity and a total mediterranean feel with fresh berry extract notes, herbal tones of fresh oregano, thyme, rosemary.

As the Mann's explain the name of the bottling so well, here is a description from their website: "What does Anthocyane mean? Anthocyanins are natural pigments in black grapes that range in color from red to blue. When crafting red wine, grapes are macerated to gently extract the pigment, giving the wine its brilliant color. Anthocyanins are also powerful antioxidants that contribute to good health, slowing down cell aging among other benefits." Cheers to that!
