A delightful blend of Syrah 44%, Cinsault 14%, Grenache 42% A method known as Saignee or bleeding was used to draw juice from the grapes prior to fermentation. Specially selected Rose ; yeast strains were used this year for its serious berry fruit flavours. The blend was cold-fermented in stainless steel prior to sterile filtration and bottling. No oaking was done. Tasting Notes: Gentle intriguing salmon colour. The nose shows attractive red cherry and pomegranate fruit. Juicy, earthy red berry fruit follows through onto a perfectly dry palate, which also shows a fleshy roundness and delicate hints of spice, yet with a fair amount of structure, grippy tannins and integrated natural acidity. The wine ends clean and fresh with an attractive minty note. Great complexity for a wine made in this style and a very versatile partner to everything from seafood to hot Thai dishes.
