Tasting notes: Savoury black fruit with hints of liquorice and black pepper on the nose, leading to a currently cool and slightly restrained palate. Rich and powerful - the Grenache adds flesh - this has all the intense flavours of the south.
Food match: Richly flavoured casseroles and grilled meats, baked Mediterranean chicken.
