Certified organic this is blend of 99% Grenache and 1% Syrah is only produced in exceptional years and comes from the two best plots of Grenache on the estate with vines aged between 50 to 70 years old.

A liquid dynamite, pleasure bent Grenache.

Deep black dark red core with black tinged edges and a red to dark red hue. Intense red to dark raspberry, red liquorice and dark cherry aromas flood the nostrils followed by notes of fresh herbs, subtle incense and peppered earth. Rich, exuberant and succulent the lavish palate is awash with a super concentrate of dark to black raspberries, dark cherries and liquorice that possess incredible torque and dynamite like power. Infusions of provincial herbs, scorched earth and peppered dried meats are largely obscured by the gobs of gorgeous, seductive fruit. Silky yet structured tannins concluding exceptionally long and juicy yet slightly chewy in its feel.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 15.5%
