Caves Fonjoya Grenache Blanc Saint Guilhem le Desert 2021

A fresh white wine, with citrus flavours layered with aromatic herbal notes of thyme, rosemary and a hint of spice on the finish. 

Producer Note - A young and dynamic company, Caves Fonjoya was established in 2018 and takes its name from the Languedoc patois; Font means fountain and Joia refers to joy. Representing a mosaic of terroirs in the Languedoc appellations, this vibrant cooperative brings together a group of enterprising vine-growers and winemakers who are united in their commitment to the protection of the terroir by using sustainable practices. Indeed, the Big Buzz range was born out of the ‘big buzz’ surrounding sustainability; the en-vogue topic of the moment. This vibrant duo of Big Buzz wines, a Grenache Blanc and Grenache Noir, come from the stunning IGP Saint-Guilhem-leDésert and both wines beautifully showcase the terroir with their purity of fruit. 

Vintage - 2021 was an extremely challenging vintage across France. After a warm start to the spring, which brought the vines along, a sudden severe frost hit vineyards during the second week in April, damaging the buds and significantly reducing yields throughout many parts of the region. While the production was reduced across the region, the remaining fruit produced juice of excellent quality. 


Vineyard - Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert is steeped in history and classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The vineyards are nestled in the foothills of the Séranne and Mont Saint-Baudille, where they are planted alongside the olive trees. The climate is the Mediterranean, hot and dry with the gentle influence of maritime breezes blowing in from the Mediterranean Sea having a tempering effect. The soils are clay-limestone, with the clay component offering good water retention properties to help hydrate the vines through the long, dry summers. The limestone component imparts elegance to the wines. The vines are sustainably cultivated, with butterfly sexual confusion being employed instead of insecticides. The vines are harvested in the cool of the night, to preserve aromatics and the freshness in the grapes. 


Winemaking - The grapes were destemmed and cool macerated in the press, followed by static settling at 8°C for 48 hours. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts in concrete tanks at controlled temperatures of 16°C. The wine was aged on its fine lees for four months, with weekly bâtonnage to impart layers of texture. The cuvée was made without the influence of oak, to retain the freshness and purity of fruit. 


Tasting Note - A fresh white wine, with citrus flavours layered with aromatic herbal notes of thyme, rosemary and a hint of spice on the finish.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
