Wine Region: Languedoc Roussillon
Grape: Grenache, Carignan and Shiraz (blend)
Highly energetic, this wine’s radiance and impulsive red berry and rose petal aromas are instantly appealing.Ample and fresh on the palate, its flavors are also tasty and fruity, underscored by vibrant minerality, brought about by the schist-laden soils – the preferred terroir of great Grenache wines.
At once dashing and approachable, VERTIGO is MAS AMIEL’s youngest wine. It serves as an introduction before discovering the estate’s more complex and dense reds. It is made out of a blend of chiefly Grenache noir, combined with Syrah and Carignan, in view of obtaining distinct freshness. VERTIGO always expresses youthful energy in an upfront and precise way.
About the Winery:
The 170 ha of Mas Amiel vines are located in the South of France between the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees mountains.
In 1816, a bishop bet one of his plots of land at a gaming table and lost it to Raymond Etienne Amiel. At that time, the property consisted only of 10ha of vines. Destroyed by the phylloxera in 1865, the estate was replanted with American vines and a cellar was built.
At the beginning of the 20th century, Jean Dupuy produced the first natural sweet wine branded Mas Amiel. The estate continued to expand throughout the whole century. In 1999, Olivier Decelle took over Mas Amiel and developed the property into a world-renowned benchmark.
