This compelling red wine is a classic blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan. It is aromatic and fruity with supple tannins, flowing into ripe notes of garrigue herbs and cherries.

The vineyards are located directly below an amphitheatre hollowed out by the river Orbieu, in the Lagrasse area, at the foot of Mount Alaric. Partly sheltered by the southern tip of Mount Alaric from the westerly ‘Cers’ wind that blows across lower Languedoc, Lagrasse enjoys a Mediterranean climate that is very conducive to late ripening. The elevation of the vineyard, between 100 and 150 metres above sea level, mitigates the high summer temperatures.

Languedoc-Rousillon, France

The Languedoc is a vast region stretching across much of the south and Mediterranean and is France`s single largest vineyard entity for its Vins de Pays wines.

Within the Languedoc lie several distinctly identified Vins de Pays (including the l`Aude, Gard and Hérault) and many appellations that maintain traditional local blends and styles such as Minervois, Corbières, Pic Saint Loup and Fitou.

Syrah/Shiraz

A red grape variety that is widely planted around the world, particularly in southern France, South Africa and Australia. Typically wines are full-bodied and deeply coloured.

Generally called Syrah in the old world, or Shiraz in the new. It produces wines which are typically high in tannins and acidity, and can exhibit a range of flavors and aromas, including blackberry, black pepper, smoke, and leather.

Grenache / Garnacha

Found throughout northern Spain and southern France, there are three variants: Grenache Noir, Blanc and Gris. 

Grenache Noir is the most common. It is generally spicy, berry-flavored and soft on the palate. Complex and intense notes of blackcurrants, black cherries, black olives, coffee, gingerbread, honey, leather, black pepper, tar, spices, and roasted nuts can also be found.

Carignan

Carignan is a relatively unknown variety, often taking a back seat to its more recognisable blending partners - Syrah and Grenache. Despite which it is an important player in southern France and Spain.

When grown with care and not over-cropped, Carignan produces wines of presence, structure, and spice. Common flavours include red berries, savoury spices, and subtle earthiness. Carignan rosés are fresh and energetic.
