Our Trio of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre are so happy together. No grape variety fights to be on top or dominate the others all are in harmony. Even the fourth element in play – wood from the oak, harmonises with the grape favours. The nose shows black forest cake aromas of dark cherries, creamy chocolate & the colour is just right. This is a classic Cotes du Rhone wine of 60 / 30 / 10% blend.
New release 750ml
Our dry-grown grapes were hand-picked in the early morning, then crushed and fermented in open fermenter bins. A careful selection of 60% Grenache, 30% Shiraz and 10% Mourvedre was made in August 2015. The 3 wines were aged in French oak, both new and old barrels to obtain complexity once blended. Enjoy this wine now or cellar for a more rewarding tasting experience up to 10+ years.
