Tasting Notes

Extremely perfumed natural red wine. Medium-bodied red wine made with no added sulphites, with notes of red berries, cherry, a hint of violet and a touch of spice. Delightful scent of parma violets, peonies and a suggestion of marzipan, red fruits (cherries and raspberries), hint of leaf and some peppery notes. Soft tannins and a bright fresh finish.

Food match: A distinctly savoury red this would go well with charcuterie and wild duck salami.

Grape varieties: 70% Negrette, 20% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

  • Grapes are crushed by their own weight only
  • Each variety is vinified separately in the traditional way for 3 weeks.
  • Placed in low capacity concrete vats which allows for better temperature control (25 to 28 °).
  • The wine is blended and ageing lasts for 12-18 months.
No added sulphites. Total sulphites below 20 mg/l (naturally occurring sulphites, but there is 'contains sulphites' on the label).
