$27.99

Certified Organic Wine

Varietal: 30% Syrah, 30% Mourvedre, 40% Carignan Aged in oak barrels for 9 month

Tasting Notes:
Color: Deep, dense, crimson garnet. Intense concentration.
Nose: Intense delicate aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry and sherry. Upon breathing, it opens up with scents of moka and liquorice bringing further complexity.
Palate: The immediate impression is richness together with a cohesive balance between the fruit, the softness of the tannins and the wine’s effortless concentration. A powerful, intense, sun soaked wine with remarkable freshness and considerable length – it is a true expression of our terroir as in the previous vintages. Already supple, it is a wine that can be drunk now yet has the character and structure for ample ageing
