Anders Frederik Steen - I Can See You from The Other Side of The Valley

Anders Frederik Steen - I Can See You from The Other Side of The Valley

Grenache Blanc 60% and Viognier 40% Slowly pressed over four days with an old vertical press before a year of élevage in old foudre. This was bottled with a little residual sugar and has re-fermented in the bottle.

With just the right amount of fizz, flesh and grip to marry beautifully with the plush stone fruits on display, this is an incredibly energizing wine.

13.5% 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.

A dry, vibrant wine with a gentle spritz that carries flavors of jasmine and apricot.
