TASTING NOTES

Dry, with lots of citrus acidity. Medium body with lots of strawberry and herbascous character on the nose. The palate builds on the nose with added flavours of red currant, cherry, raspberry, rhubarb, melon, and minerality.

REVIEWS

91 POINTS | John Schreiner

Every red varietal in the winery was bled for this. The blend is 29% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, 20% Syrah, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec and 8% Petit Verdot. The vibrant hue is a bit darker than the Provence style; more like a Tavel rosé. The aromas of strawberry and red currant just bound from the glass, leading to bold and herbaceous flavours of strawberry, cranberry, cherry and red currant. The wine is dry.
