In a nutshell:
An organic, fresh and vibrant Grenache/Syrah blend from Roussillon in the far south of France
For the modest price this is a very skifully made wine. As typical of Roussillon reds it a blend of a selection of the permitted grape varieties here. Grenach and Syrah form the backbone, but there's also a little Mourvedre and some old vine Carignan. There is lots of juicy fruit here with plums and mulberries at first backed up by pepper and spicy minerally notes. It's got a good weight and silky tannins which give a nice balance and it's packed with lovely freshness of flavour and finishes with a touch of savouriness.
When to drink:
Its spicy notes make it a really good barbecue wine and one that will also go with a range of other spicy grilled meat recipes.
