This wine is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes grown in a stony soil of quartz mixed with sandy red clay.
The grapes are hand-picked and fully destemmed before fermentation. Each grape variety is fermented individually and fermentation/maceration lasts for approximately 4 weeks. After about 12 months of maturing, the different varieties, which were aged partly in oak and partly in vat, are combined to form the final blend before bottling.
A rich, bright ruby colour with a subtle and complex nose of ripe strawberry and Provençal herbes. The palat is full and structured with dark-fruit flavours of spicy plum and black cherry complemented by smooth, silky tannins on the finish.
