Available from Pic Wines for £11.55. On the nose this simply bursts with succulent, spicy, blackcurrants and cherries. The palate though is more restrained, quite elegant in fact with a nice balance between the tannins, rich blackfruits and a meaty depth. The blend is comprised of Syrah (60%), Mourvedre (20%) and Grenache (20%). Alcohol 13.5%. Scribblings Rating – 92/100
