FIVE STARS 93/100 Sam Kim - Wine Orbit "...succulent fruit intensity and rounded mouthfeel.
Our long term Cotes du Rhone buyers will know this wine well and understand what a bargain it is and the 2018 vintage is excellent. Vinted by one of the Rhone's greatest producers, this hand harvested blend of Grenache and Syrah brings layers of choco-berry flavours with some spicy syrah notes and a soft finish that is rounded and very satisfying. Now well under $20 with the Advintage Advantage this classy wine is compulsory buying for any fan of middleweight Rhone reds. On the value for money scale, it comes with our highest recommendation.
Sam Kim writes "The wine is gorgeously fruited and inviting on the nose showing Black Doris plum, blueberry compote, toasted nut and mixed spice characters with a lovely floral lift. The palate delivers succulent fruit intensity and rounded mouthfeel, well complemented by silky texture and polished tannins. A lovely modern style"
