Ample and generous with extremely silky tannins. The alternately fruity and spicy flavours have a long persistence and contribute to the overall harmony of this wine.

In The Vineyard

Area of origin: Roussillon, South of France

In The Cellar

After destemming followed by light crushing, the grapes are pumped to red fermenters directly. Fermentation is then carried out around 26°C and the extraction is achieved by pumping over. The maceration varies in length depending on the grape varieties. After malolactic fermentation, the wines are aged in stainless steel vats to obtain an elegant wine that respects the character of its grape varieties. Bottled after one year of aging.

Additional Information

This Côtes du Roussillon red blend is made from Mediterranean grape varieties from old vines, and truly represents the expression of « New world » winegrowers on one of the most beautiful terroirs in France.
The elegant label on his bottle traces the Grier family’s story through a stylized illustration of a world map, on which the journey between South Africa and the South of France is indicated.
