Nicolas Carmarans Fer de Sang

Nicolas Carmarans Fer de Sang

Regular price $64.00

2016 // 750ml // ABV 11.3%

Fer, in French, means iron - in the case of this varietal - fer servadou, is a reference to the very hard and "iron-like" wood stock of the vine's above ground canopy which makes this particular vine hard to handle, to prune and trellis. 

Nicolas' Fer de Sang - roughly translated as iron blood does a 10-day carbonic maceration in tanks, followed by élevage in neutral barrique. It is deep and rich on the nose with a smokey, gamey edge with tart cranberry, winter citrus, tomato leaf, and petrichor. The palate is bursting with berry flavs - blackberries, blueberries, raspberries - alongside a bloody iron-like tang. Long and smooth and sultry, this is sexy wine for cold nights beside the fire on a shag pile rug with a lover.
