Produced from certified organic un-irrigated bush vines planted in 1946 with maturation taking place in a mixture of older French oak puncheons and foudre, ceramic eggs and amphora.

A Brilliant Grenache possessing a delicious core of red fruits that are framed by a Nebbiolo like tannin and acid structure.

Deep dark red core with black toned edges and a red to dark red hue. Soaring out of the glass are dark raspberry, red liquorice and wild cherry aromas which are complimented by crushed rock, Provincial herb and peppered rose petal like end notes. Rich yet brimming with energy and freshness, the muscular palate features red to dark raspberry, red liquorice and dark cherry fruits. Tightly coiled by a stern tannin structure and bright acidity, notions of crushed rock, fresh herbs and peppered earth characteristics play out across the back half. Outstanding power finishing long and juicy yet robust.
Cellar up to 8-10 years.
Alc. 14.5%

Other Reviews……
Bush vines planted in 1946 on a deep sandy dune. Hand-picked and sorted, with 50% whole berries for a wild ferment. Perfumed rose petals and wild strawberries, the palate bursts with energy and drive, all in a red spectrum. Drink by 2037.
