Anders Frederik Steen - New Peach on the Block

Anders Frederik Steen - New Peach on the Block

Syrah 40% and Merlot 30%, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache Noir and Cinsault.

Peach is back - but not in the usual Peachy-style - this 2020 Peach is in flavors a very expressive rosé. The wine spent just a couple of months in cuve and was bottled young, brimming with energy. The most incredible shade of pink, this crisp, clean and vibrant rosé offers beautiful bitterness that offers refreshment in spades.

13% ABV

Anders Frederik Steen makes wine from “grapes and only grapes”. He’s been doing this since 2013. Anders and his family have now settled in the beautiful village of Valvignères in the Ardèche and he grows grapes and makes wine at his friends Jocelyne & Gérald Oustric’s farm, Le Mazel. It is a beautiful spot on the slope of a wide, open valley and the many varieties grown here thrive on a perfect mix of clay and limestone. The vineyards are full of life, having been tended organically for decades.

Anders’ wines are made from red grapes which are either pressed directly or destemmed by hand and white grapes pressed directly in a beautiful old wooden press. Any blending is done during the harvest and the different varieties always ferment together, spontaneously, outside under the open sky. The wines are bottled unfiltered, with no additions and are thoughtful, original expressions of this part of the Ardèche.

Tart Raspberry, Warm summer flowers and a very charming fruity side.
