This generous red is deep red in colour, has black fruit (black cherries) and spices characteristic to Rhone: i.e. thyme and lavender. Palate is silky with rounded tannins. We love this wine to be rich yet very approachable, very typical to Rhone, but not too jammy or overripe - just right with the balance of dark fruit flavours, delicate oak, vanilla and herbiness. Fantastic value for money for this multi-award winning wine. It has become our bestselling product, buy a few to share with friends- we simply guarantee you will be satisfied with its richness and smoothness.
