This is a light red wine from the black marl, and friable schist soils of the Mas Las Cabes estate farmed organically and biodynamically by the Gardiés family. The wine this careful cultivation yields is true to its origin with subtle liquorice and olive notes on the nose and a generously fruity and mildly tannic palate.

Hand-harvested, with natural yeast and some biodynamic treatments following the terroir-driven approach. A first for Domaine Gardiés. Ageing for eight months, one third in the barrel and two thirds in concrete, allows for development but not overpowering of the exceptional fruit. Sulphites 40mg/l so in essence a 'natural wine'.

Jean Gardies

"Mas Las Cabes is the name adopted by Domaine Gardiés to mark its conversion to organic farming and their certification as ""Vin Biologique.""A stone's throw from the Pyrenees and the Spanish border, the vineyards are a combination of blackschists and scrubland limestone. The view overlooking the vineyards nestled in the foothills of Corbières is nothing short off spectacular. The moment we stepped on the ground, we were overcome by the fragrance of the garrigue permeatingthe air and carried by the breeze of the Mediterranean winds. Both the red and white Mas Las Cabes are structured, concentrated, yet elegant. The Domaine Gardiés On S'en Fish indirectly translates to ""we don't care."" We understand that the exact opposite is true of Gardiés - they care passionately aboutliving in harmony with rough and wild nature. What they don't care about is producing wines dictated by the market, rather wines dictated by this guiding principle."
