80% Syrah, 20% Grenache. Spicy! Bramble and raspberry nose, with notes of black olive, garrigue herbs, black pepper and a faint whiff of lily of the valley. Rich, spicy and chock full of red and black fruits, again with savoury black olive and garrigue herb notes. The tannins are firm and spicy, but at the same time supple, and there is a wonderful core of tangy orange and cherry kernel acidity. The finish is peppery/spicy, juicy and very long. A gorgeous wine, which is ready to drink now, but also has the all the ingredients necessary for it to age and evolve for another 5 years or more. Certified organic and biodynamic.
