From the importer Living Wines Australia : Séraphin is an intensely flavoured red wine made almost entirely from Grenache and this year with a little Clairette added. The forty year old vines grow in quartz and limestone clay and Julien treats the vines using biodynamic techniques including nettle and fenugreek sprays. The wine was fermented naturally and then transferred to three year old 400 litre barrels where it matures for 6 months. The grapes were picked on the 27th August 2021 and the juice was bottled on the 9th and 10th of March 2022. We recommend decanting this one!

Vinification: While he only recently celebrated his 40th birthday, self-proclaimed paysan Julien Peyras comes from a long line of vignerons. Inspired by his father, he decided to go “all the way” in his return to roots and nature when he began to make wine in 2007. Julien’s geographical proximity and friendship with natural wine pioneer Bernard Bellahsen is reflected in his own deeply-felt connection with the earth, which he honors by allowing the vineyards to function in harmony with their delicate surrounding ecosystems. Using tisanes and rich fertilizers in the field, careful attention is paid to the climate, moon cycles, and vegetative growth. He refuses all chemical intervention in the winemaking process, allowing each varietal and unique terroir to express themselves as nature intended. Celebrated from London and New York all the way to Australia, Julien’s wines are fruit-forward and bursting with juice, for an unforgettable, full-glass experience!
