Oh my! Where do we even start about this one. Cinsault has always been one of our favourite variety and rarely do we see a single varietal as its more commonly used in blends.

The intense red fruit notes, the refreshing acidity, the ability to create something so light in a typically warm region is simply mind-blowing. 

We shouldn't pick but if we were to pick the favourite of our De Mena wines it would be Wabi-Sabi, it coincidentally is also the cuvée which got us acquainted with De Mena.

De Mena which roughly translates into "By Nature" in the Catalan Dialect was started by Sébastien Argélet in 2012 in the village of Paziols. Coming from a family of grape growers, the family decided to end their contracts with the co-operatives due to difference in vision. This allowed Sébastien to take over 30 hectares of organic vines certified since 2010. Franck, Sébastien's elder brother later joined in 2017 and started making his wines that year making De Mena a truly multigenerational family business.

De Mena practises minimal intervention and uses chemical treatments in small doses only when absolutely necessary such as copper only when in the face of disease pressure in the vines and sulphites at bottling. In order to impact soil life as little as possible, they practise shallow plowing when necessary organic fertilisers are used.
