Highly aromatic with notes of sandalwood, dried orange, violets and wood spice on the nose, it follows through to a palate that is paradoxically elegant and vibrant but concentrated and persistent. Silky smooth with a glossy, hightly attractive palate of wild strawberry, violets and the merest hint of cinnamon and woodsmoke. Achingly beautiful but deliciously drinkable all at once.

Winner and Top Gold - James Halliday Grenache Challenge, 2019

Flat out beautiful Grenache. Raspberry, dried herb, rose oil, spice. Pure, glowing red fruits and juicy raspberry in particular, cool acidity, dusted with fine graphite tannin, pulls more savoury to close, and runs very long. Fabulous.
