Grenache forms the backbone of southern Rhône blends, including Châteauneuf du Pape, Gigondas and Vacqueyras. The vast area of Côtes du Rhône offers a great diversity of soils, microclimates and a variety of grapes to create a range of styles at all quality levels.

The Suter family have been making wnies in the Rhône valley for generations. They combine their wealth of winemaking experience with modern techniques to create wines of the highest quality.

This classic French Côtes du Rhône red wine is a blend of Syrah (70%) and Grenache (30%). It is named after the famous Mistral; a cold dry north or northwest wind, which blows down through the Rhone Valley to the Mediterranean.

Red berries leap from the glass on the nose and the palate is fresh with juicy fruits, soft tannins and a crisp acidity.

Serve with lamb shanks or roast game dishes.
