I was expecting this to be weird (blend of Grenache and “white varieties” whatever that means) but it was clean, fruity, and had more tannins than I expected. (Still on the low end but they were there.)

Solid stuff. Northern Rhône Grenache so lighter. Pretty nose. Licorice slightly and earth and red fruit.

Juicy and tart! Strawberry rhubarb. Late season cherries. Silky smooth.

Svårflirtad kisse. Tråkmörka toner som behöver redig luftning för att locka fram fruktighet. Inte helt såld. Dryckesbutiken via Winefinder.

Approachable funk! A bit of structure that softens as it opens up.
