Ugni Blanc Neirei, Inebriati 2019, Languedoc, France

Domaine Inebriati is a relatively young domaine in the Pic-Saint-Loup, being founded in 2011, but for sure one that is making waves. The winemaker, Victor, is steadfast in his belief in natural winemaking, refusing to use any additives, chemicals or other modern winemaking techniques, just grapes and native yeast. He’s also not one to follow the rules of the region, choosing instead to label many of his wines as Vin de France to allow for more freedom of varietals and blending.

Nerei is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Ugni Blanc. Hand harvested fruit is co-fermented in tank with native yeast. The juice is allowed to stay on skins for a few hours before being pressed off. The wine is bottled with minimal amounts of Sulphur.
