In a nutshell:
A fresh, supple and organic blend of Syrah and Grenache from the slopes of Mont Ventoux in the Rhone valley.
Made by ex-pat James King this is a great alternative to Côtes du Rhone badged wines. The syrah gives it a marked darkness of colour. Violets, cherries, hints of tobacco aromas lead onto a palate of brambles, black pepper and herbs. A year in oak barrels adds texture and softness. Altogether this is a well made wine and largely achieves the elegance and depth of flavour which they set out to reach.
When to drink:
Classically pairs well with roast lamb dishes, though the quality, softness and freshness of this wine means it is highly versatile.
