Kreydenweiss Les Grimaudes Rouge is a red wine made with the Cariñena and Garnacha varieties by the Kreydenweiss winery in the AOC Costières de Nîmes.
Kreydenweiss is the name of a family winery in Alsace that has more than 300 years of winemaking history. In 1999, attracted by a little known denomination, they started a new project to pay tribute to the red wines of Costières de Nîmes. Using the same work philosophy that they have in Alsace, they practice biodynamic agriculture to respect the terroir and the environment and promote the Cariñena, Syrah, Garnacha and Mourvèdre red varieties.
Kreydenweiss Les Grimaudes Rouge comes from vineyards grown using biodynamic practices. Located 50 km from Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur) the slightly inclined plots are made up of ferruginous and pebble soils. The yield is limited at 30 hectolitres per hectare. The harvest is carried out manually at the optimum moment of ripeness.
In the winery, the Kreydenweiss Les Grimaudes Rouge grape is selected and destemmed. Traditional winemaking methods are used with alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature. Aging takes place over 12 months in French oak barrels.
Kreydenweiss Les Grimaudes Rouge is a red wine made from varieties that have been delicately vinified to preserve the expression and softness of the grape. A reflection of the sensitivity and femininity of its maker, Emmanuelle Kreydenweiss.
