Product description

How it smells

An exciting wine to explore with an evolving aroma that flows from smoke and ash, violet and neutral oak, to raspberry jelly and red licorice, and even cinnamon. The red berry fruit profile grows with time and takes over more of the pronounced flavours, adding freshness.

How it tastes

Punchy, but refined! There are pops and sparks of fun flavours and an acidity that grows throughout the sip, with the salivation increasing as the wine travels across your tongue. The fruit leans towards more tart berries, like wild strawberry, underripe plums and cranberry. A bitterness of red apple skin and herbs, and sticky, cottony tannins leave a drying sensation throughout the mouth. This medium to light bodied wine carries a ton of flavour and personality.

Recommended food pairing

Grenache and Carignan has an affinity for braised and stewed dishes, here in a lighter body and partnered with a gracious friend, Mourvèdre, we suggest a roasted pork tenderloin with a balsamic glaze and a generous herb blend of rosemary and thyme, served with roasted carrots and parsnips.
