38% Grenache-34% Syrah-28% Carignan
12 x 750 ml
Intense color with deep purple highlights heralds in a wine with depth and complexity. Expressive, frank nose exuding aromas of red fruit, redcurrant, blackcurrant and a hint of oak. The front-of-palate is silky, evolving over the top of discreet but well-structured tannins. Great freshness, prolonging the aromatic expression. An authentic wine.

The perfect companion with soft cheese, marinated grilled meat, casseroles.
|Wine Making||The grapes are totally de-stemmed and fermented for 6-8 days at 30 to 32C. Maceration lasts for 30-40 days with daily pumping over.|
|Vinification||They had a terrible storm on 5th May. The vines took 15 days to come to life again, but 20% of the crop was lost. And then there was summer hail. They waited for ten days and then started picking. So a surprisingly successful vintage.|
