50% Carignan 25% Mouvedre 15% Grenache 10 % Syrah
No new oak and sees whole bunch fermentation for 18 days.
Vibrant purple in appearance
This is a wine full of energy that is lively on the palate. Certainly wakes the palate up! Brambly, dark fruits. sour strap cherries, crushed graphite and some soy like umami along with Licquorice. Touch of forest floor adds interest. Medium bodied with mouth-watering, bright acidity and a very long after taste.
Captivating wine and is well worth giving it a nudge for interests sake.
