Sinapius 2018 Clem Blanc
A unique field blend of estate grown, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Riesling, Grüner Veltliner and Gewürztraminer. All varieties are harvested at the same time, and given 48-72 hours skin contact prior to pressing. Co-fermented with wild yeasts and matured in old oak for 6 months.
A highly aromatic wine with a bouquet of delicate white flowers, orange zest, Beurre Bosc pear, Meyer lemon, musk and subtle smokiness. The palate follows with wonderful layers of texture, both savoury and saline, with subtle creaminess on the back palate.

Sinapius 2019 Esmè
100% Estate Grown Gamay sourced from our high density planted vineyard (7700-11,111 vines/ha), planted in 2013.
Gently handpicked to ensure all bunches remain intact, the grapes underwent traditional whole cluster carbonic maceration for 3 weeks, without any addition of sulfur. Matured in old barriques for 5 months, and bottled without fining and filtration in November 2019. Minimal sulfur added (<20ppm) prior to bottling.
The wine opens with an intensely perfumed nose, showing bright red cherries and hints of violets and wild fennel. Light to medium bodied, the palate is sweet’n’silky, full of juicy pomegranates, with fine/chalky tannins. This wine has great length and persistence, with a wonderful fine spice and lively acidity to finish. Please store or cellar below 16° to ensure optimal drinking.
Alc 12%. Cellar to 2022.
