Single Bottles (75cl) @ £14.00
      Go Back
Tasting Notes:
The Syrah base is responsible for the intense blackberry fruit aromas although some leather from the Mourvedre is noticeable; the oak adds a little sweet vanilla but is well judged - the wine is extremely drinkable now! The palate is very well balanced with lots of blackberry fruit, grilled steak and charred wood.
Drinking Dates:
2011 to 2016
Cépagement:
80% Syrah, 10% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre
Soil:
Stony clay-limestone
Upbringing:
Sustainable viticulture, hand harvested. Two week fermentation at 29°C, followed by post-fermentation maceration for one week. Aged 18 months in 25% new French oak barriques. No fining, minimal filtration.
ABV:
13.5%
Critic Reviews:
"More Syrah [than Three Peaks] and no Carignan. It gets longer in oak, and has 30% new oak, too. Perhaps the fruit quality is higher here – I loved its blackcurranty style. Indeed with the oak it almost contrived to suggest something claretty. On the palate, it’s pure, clean, fresh, lightly textured and deftly balanced: remarkable freshness and poise from the sometimes over-weighty Roussillon." (Andrew Jefford)
Food:
Steak and chips, grills

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
