A bright but deep, semi-translucent carmine/cherry red colour. The 10% Mourvedre in the blend really does make all the difference, adding a subtle meaty-herby savouriness to the fresh, ripe, red cherry, blackcurrant and raspberry aromas and flavours of the Syrah. On the palate, it is beautifully poised - crammed full of gloriously fresh, juicy, garrigue herb-tinged red and black fruit flavours, ripe tannins and a refreshing lick of cherry kernel acidity, with a welcome bite of peppery spice and cool mint on the finish. From vineyards wedged between the southern Rhône and eastern Languedoc (south-west of Nimes), it certainly sings of the latter rather than the former, with a coolness and genuine elegance that one rarely, if ever, finds in the Rhône. Aged in vat, with no oak influence at all, it really is a delightful wine. Organic.
