A blend of 65% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre. Partial destemming and crushing upon arrival at the winery. 3 weeks of maceration with punch-downs and pumping over. 80% of the wine is aged in 275-litre oak Laurus barrels for 15 months (1 and 2-year barrels). Bottled at 14.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Warm plum and raspberry compote notes gliding through, lined with black tea and incense accents that blossom and linger on the finish.

Palate: Fruit entry, dark red fruit, hints of tea leaf mid-palate, savoury with notes of dried herbs such as thyme.

Finish: Lingering black tea leaf note. Very elegant with a fine powdery tannin.
