2016 vintage. Syrah 94 %, Cinsault 4%, Carignano 2%. Fresh and juicy with subtle spices, easy to drink. Very nice drink, if simple and therefore overpriced at 22 euro.

Arguing these may be the most talented winemakers south of the equator? Bbq stains optional.

Smoked meat, floral, black fruit, and black olives. Tasted blind and thought it was Rhone. Not the most complex, but lovely savoury note. Great introductory wine from a cutting-edge producer. Incredible value

Plummy, spicy, floral. Nowhere near as brilliant as their Syrah, but this is still a really enjoyable wine.

A bit to much acid for me, but it was a crowd pleaser for the group.
