Ageing This wine should age gracefully and drink well for up to 10 years from vintage.
BlendPercent 95% Grenache, 5% Shiraz
Cellar The grapes were hand-picked into small baskets and taken to the cellar where they were destalked and gently crushed. The wine fermented in small open bins with four punch downs a day. When totally dry, we pressed into oak barrels to complete malolactic fermentation. The wine matured for 14 months in small French oak barrels of which, roughly 30% were new. A small percentage of Shiraz was added to the blend. 3800 bottles were produced.
FoodSuggest This wine should be served slightly chilled with French country bistro cuisine such as warm sausage and potato salad, chicken braised with fennel, saffron and green olives or lamb chops with ratatouille and tapenade.
