Grapes from old vines of Callet, Mantonegre-Fogoneu and Syrah are hand-harvested, fermented in stainless steel with native yeasts, and macerated only briefly to retain the most refined flavors of this fully ripe fruit. Aged for 12 months in a combination of French and American barriques.
The wine opens with a nose of honeysuckle and jasmine, fills the mouth with ripe, round flavors, yet is refreshing on the palate and firmly held together with its soft tannic structure. The raspberry-like finish is long.
This wine pairs excellently with stuffed pork chops, rabbit ravioli or roast leg of duck.
