"4 years old vines.
Direct pressed with grapes unstemmed.
Short maceration in amphore, and then in stainless steel tanks until bottling.
Slightly oxidative and iodized.
The name of the cuvee comes from the Catalunya bird “stone curlew”, which has large yellow eyes and is hard to see because of its perfect camouflage. But he is easy to hear because of its scandalous singing!"
About the Winemaker
The Domain Les Salicaires is a family estate in Canet en Roussillon, that Vincent inherited in 2016. The whole domain is conducted in organic agriculture.
Being very close to the Mediterranean sea (1km), the vines take advantage of the sea spray which gives a minerality to both whites and reds.
US Natural Wine ships once a week, every Wednesday. All orders should be placed by Tuesday at 10am in order to be picked up from our distributors and out on Wednesday's delivery truck.
Shipping cost is 18 bucks a box (up to 12 bottles) so we highly encourage picking up more than 1 bottle for the best value!
At $18, we have some of the most competitive shipping rates compared to other low-intervention wine e-commerce, which can range from $20-$25 a box. Ultimately, we eat the cost of shipping more often than not because wine can be damn heavy. As a small business, we are simply unable to offer free shipping. We can't thank you enough for your understanding!
