The second Rhone last Sunday. Earthy loam notes together with ripe Grenache aromas of raspberry and red liquorice although the raspberry notes are much more savoury at 12 years. On the medium bodied palate some Liqueur cherry notes with mild resolved tannins. At its peak - fruit, oak, tannin and acid all in balance. The perfect accompaniment to Roast Lamb and Vegetables. A blend of 65% Grenache 15% Syrah 15% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault.

Aromas of loam, plums and light tarry nuances which translate onto the medium weight palate with M+ intensity. Tell tale garrigue notes of underbrush and thyme. Soft Liqueur cherries. I think after Burgundy my favourite World Wine regions would have to be both CDP and Cote Rotie. Celebrating an unexpected win for the Coalition in the Australian Election after all the Polls and the Bookmakers were tipping a Labour win. Scott Morrison will be our Prime Minister for the next 3 years and beyond I would think.

Effortless, elegant feel. Very balanced, relatively light on its feet with striking floral and balsamic notes. Forceful on the entry with broad mouthfeel and nervy mineral streak. Juicy wild berry fruit coating every fiber of the palate with ripe tannins.

Ripe raspberry, dramatic spice, dynamic acidity somehow, herbaceous, forest floor, soothing tannin. A little robust and all over the place but quite complex also.
