Rhône blends are like boy bands, where each member is cast for their specific qualities. Grenache is the cute, approachable one, with generous fruit and refreshing acidity. Syrah is the complicated, brooding type with spice and violets. And Mouvèdre is the wild one, that’s rough around the edges yet savory and easy to fall for.
Our take on this blend is 51% Grenache, 34% Mouvèdre and 15% Syrah, all from the same certified organic vineyard. However our wine isn’t just a blend, it’s co-fermented, with all the fruit picked on the same day and the percentages decided then and there. Co-fermenting yields deeper color and brighter flavors and all around better integration.
On the nose, aromas of clove and anise. On the tongue, strawberries, plum, black cherry and fig. The wine has a soy sauce type umami with dusty tannins.
