“This is now very much a Domaine to keep an eye on and is a rising star within the appellation.”

Effervescence Sparkling Wine
Wood is producing a new organic, exciting and refreshing sparkling wine called Effervescence. This bubbly is crisp and dry with only 12% alcohol and no added sugar. Effervescence is the perfect aperitif – light and natural but with a fizz – makes for a great Aperol Spritz! The low sugar content and no added sulfites allows responsible wedding guests to drink celebratory bubbly again without fear of headaches.
Tradition White 2018
Made from hand harvested organic grapes that produce layered aromas of fresh tropical and exotic flowers caressed by a hint of vanilla. The palate shows lively fruit and a clean minerality with hints of honey and macadamia nuts. Clean and precise grip which enrobes your mouth with subtle barrel fermented grenache blanc, giving it length and a noble structure.
This limited-edition white cuvee is only produced in special vintages. Séléné 2015 has an opulent nose of tropical fruit with the lively, yet deep, weight of French oak. This leads to a fresh mineral front palate that balances the weight of the fruit led mid palate, and the grip from the aging in the barrel. Always sunshine filled, Séléné can be enjoyed with seafood, white meats and all manner of cheeses. It will leave your mouth refreshed, stimulated and excited for your next glass!
Séléné 2017 earned the Gold Medal at the 2020 World Organic Wine Fair in Montpellier, France. This limited edition white cuvee yields aromas of honey, mustard and stone fruit that is subtly complemented by oak. Rich, mineral and pure.
