50% Syrah, 30% Mourverde, 20% Grenache Noir
12 x 750 ml
The ruby of the Syrah and the garnet of the Mourvedre are giving the wine a beautiful shining color. The complex bouquet has some violet touches, dominated by the concentration of ripe black fruits with a hint of vanilla and spices. First impression is graceful. The body is smooth, velvety with notes of pepper and spices finishing with liquorice.
