What is this kind of wine?
This bottle of Rivesaltes Cazes is not defined by its "red" or "white" colour, it is a natural sweet wine made from Grenache noir. It is called a "Vin Tranquille" (red or white). This wine is "mutated" when brandy is added at 90° during fermentation. This addition of alcohol stops the alcoholic fermentation and modifies the balance of the wine:
- The degree of alcohol is higher than in a still wine.
- The sweetness is higher, since by stopping the fermentation, the yeasts have not had time to finish their effort and have not transformed all the sugars present in the base wine into alcohol.
- Bottles of Rivesaltes are wines that can be kept for a very long time. The wine has remained in barrels for decades and has only recently been bottled; hence the perfect condition of the bottle.
