In a nutshell: A classic, friendly and warming southern Rhône red.
The lowdown: The fruit for this delicious red comes from vineyards just outside those designated for the more famous Rhône appellations ample and as such gives a good value taste of the wines of this part of the world. It's a blend of mainly Grenache with a good amount of Syrah. It's full of sweet, ripe fruit flavours with that quintessential Rhone hallmark - Grenache spicness sprinkled with rich Syrah. In all, a delicious, medium bodied, massively drinkable red.
When to drink: Great with all sorts of things from grilled meat and casseroles to pizza, pasta and mature hard cheeses.
