About the Vineyard
"Peyrat" is the name of the lieu-dit where the winery is located. It means "pierre" or stone in the old, local dialect. The vineyards are planted on a bedrock of limestone with sand and clay.
Located in Cérons, in the heart of the Graves AOP, Château Peyrat is a 42 acre "clos" currently planted to 20 acres of white varieties and 18.5 acres of red. With its microclimate, due to the proximity of the Garonne River, and the sandy, clay soils on a limestone bedrock, Peyrat typifies the Graves terroir, displaying minerality, freshness and finesse. As for viticulture, the team at Peyrat promote working the soils and sowing grasses to restore the vineyards natural balance and to promote biodiversity. "Let the plant live, express itself, create a symbiosis with the elements."
Château Peyrat has a simple winemaking philosophy - respect the typicity of the grape varieties and work in small concrete tanks to conserve fruit and freshness to the wines.
The terroir shows in this clean, mineral driven red wine. It displays a spicy and fresh nose with notes of blackcurrant and red fruits.
