Domaine des Escaravailles has been owned by the Férran family since the 1950’s. It consists of 65 hectares of vineyards, 40 of which are on the rocky, clay-limestone hillsides of Rasteau. Les Sablieres is a Grenache Syrah blend sourced from vines between 30-50 years old.
Deep dark red black tinged colour with a dark red hue. Inviting aromas of dark cherry, raspberry and red liquorice mix with light earthy graphite and spicy dried herb notes. Light to mid weight with a gentle fleshy textural feel, flavours of dark raspberry, cherry and liquorice meld into subtle scorched earth and peppered herb characters. Smooth fine grained tannins with a touch of meatiness on the medium length aftertaste.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
Alc. 14%
