  • Ripe fruit
  • Vanilla
  • Roasted nuts

"The wine is beautifully fruited and fragrant on the nose showing Black Doris plum, vanilla, olive and roasted nut characters. The palate delivers lovely weight and sweet fruit intensity together with elegant savoury nuances, finishing long and delectable" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Oct 2019

This Grenache offers a very clean and bright ruby red colour with crimson hues. The aromas are of medium intensity, its complex aromas are a fine blend of spicy and ripe fruit scents. The palate is smooth and full flavoured in harmony with the tannins afforded by the oak. The taste lingers on for a long duration.

This wine underwent traditional wine making, fermented at 28º C followed by a 15 day maceration with skin contact. After the malolactic fermentation both varieties are blended. A vine age of 30 years for Garnacha and 20 years for Tempranillo. This has aged for 6 months in American oak barrels. Additional ageing in bottle before release.

Food Pairing: Match this with a delicious lamb roast dinner or spicy Asian dishes.
