MAÏA Côtes de Provence
A Reflection of Provence…
From ancient vineyards in the heart of Côtes de Provence appellation, MAÏA is sourced from some of the finest sites in the region. From the vine through winemaking to the glass itself, no expense is spared to ensure the finest wine reaches the customer.
In the vineyard, particular attention is paid to site-specific planting, with each variety grown on the most appropriate part of the Estate, allowing it to reach its full potential. Grenache is the most widely planted grape, prospering in the deep, almost stone free ground. Being southeast facing, the vineyard is directly influenced by the nearby Mediterranean Sea. The wines therefore offer a subtle character brought about by the sea air.
Harvesting takes place in the early morning to avoid the oxidative issues that come from picking in the midday heat. During the harvest, grapes that are selected and picked are put in small crates, having been both handpicked and mechanically harvested. Once the grapes arrive to the cellars, they are sorted manually and then go through optical sorting. Both Liam Steevenson MW and Mark Pygott MW oversee the blending.
