Blend of Grenache and Syrah grapes.
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 spices and garrigue. The palate is full and structured with spicy and dark-fruit flavours (prune and cherry) complemented by smooth, silky tannins on the finish.
