Mosse Bangarang 2020
Domaine Mosse have been producing fine natural wines out of the Loire Valley for many years. They are now certified Biologique.
Notes from Living Wines:
The Mosse family has created a variation of their incredibly popular wine released before called Bangarang. This year it has been made using mainly the fabulous Pineau d’Aunis (90%) as well as Cabernet Franc (10%).
The Pineau d’Aunis was hand harvested from 50 and 70 year old vines.
The Pineau d’Aunis had just 4 days of whole bunch maceration to make it into a lightish red. The Cabernet Franc was destemmed and macerated for 10 days.
The juice was then transferred to concrete tanks and stainless steel tanks for fermentation and maturation.
Millennial movie buffs might know that Bangarang was the battle cry of the Lost Boys in the Stephen Spielberg movie Hook, immortalised when Robin Williams as Peter Pan used it to call them for help. The movie was a favourite of Joseph and Sylvestre Mosse when they were children and we suspect still is. (The lot number of this wine is Hook3.)
This wine is just perfect for summer drinking slightly chilled.
