Le Temps des Cerises Jalava 2019
Axel Prüfer is based in the region of Beziers, Languedoc, and is known for producing full of character, low alcohol wines and his gentle, intuition-led approach to winemaking. Jalava is a mineral and fresh, light red in colour Cinsault with notes of raspberries, black cherries and pepper. A 20-day semi-carbonic maceration gives Jalava just a touch of crunchy structure while retaining Axel’s hallmark lightness of touch. Plentiful details dot the palate of this wine which is lovely now, but sure to be something quite remarkable in the near future.
