Tasting Note:

Wild and sweet, spicy fruit on the nose. The palate is dense, meaty and powerful. Full to the brim with concentrated, ripe, dark hedgerow berry fruits with strong black peppercorn and saddle leather overtones. Touches of confit fruit add sweetness to the savoury, sappy characteristics whilst the finish is heady and all-consuming. A blend of 80% Grenache 10% Syrah 5% Mourvèdre 5% field blend of the remainder of the 13 permitted varieties. All from vines aged between 25 and 80 years old. Fermented the traditional way, lightly pressed whole bunch in concrete vats followed by a minimum 18 months in large old. wooden cask, bottled without filtration.
