This sunshine blend from the South of France begins with the expressive red berry fruit of Merlot, whilst in the background Mourvedre gives spiciness and pleasant grip to the blend. Made from Merlot 80% and Mourvèdre 20%.
The grapes are de-stemmed and macerated at cool temperatures prior to fermentation (in order to retain the fresh fruit flavours) and the wine is vinified without oak before the final blend is assembled. The Mourvedre grape comes mainly from the warm south part of the Languedoc Roussillon.
A wine that can be enjoyed with or without food, although it would happily partner hearty pastas and Mediterrannean dishes flavoured with tomatoes, olives or anchovies.
