Tasting & Pairing Notes
This red is a delicious blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre with aromas and flavours of dark juicy fruits, herbs, spice and light minerality.
It gets better with time, so you can savour it after cellaring for three to five years, or pop it open while you’re cooking a roasted meat supper and by the time you’ve sat down with your plate it will be ready to embrace.
It has a plush, full texture from its time in French oak, but it’s still plummey, pruney, and juicy with a long-lasting finish. Pair with roast lamb, steak, or a juicy burger.
Where to Buy

This wine is delicious. Smooth. Well-balanced with lots of flavour. Contrary to the above review, the bottle says it is 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah. No Mouvedre3.
