2020 Domaine des Escaravailles Les Sablieres Cotes du Rhone
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.
Dark red core with black toned edges and a red to dark red hue. Fragrant red fruit aromas of raspberry, cherry and liquorice are followed by some fresh herb, delicate earth and spicy pepper notes. Light to medium weight, delicious spicy red raspberry, cherry and red liquorice fruits overlay a subtle scorched earth and peppered fresh herb back drop. Juicy, energetic feel with lively acidity and polished tannins. Finishes with a red fruit laden aftertaste that’s infused with spice and pepper.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
