Tasting Note:

Full robust, but assured. There are clearly more layers and more middle to this than the regular blend. Richly flavoured, muscled but with a brilliant, very pristine quality of fruit. Notes of bramble, loganberry and raspberry with a hint of salt and pepper. Impressive A whole-bunch-fermented blend is dominated by Grenache with around a quarter Cinsault and a small touch of Syrah. The vines are fifty year old vines from which Isabel Ferrando makes less than 2,000 cases a year. The vines are in the estate’s original and historic Quartier des Serres sector. Half of the wine is aged in concrete tank and half in large used oak hogsheads, for 18 months.
