Darren Harris

From vineyards on the fringe of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. A blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Cinsault. The nose is quite rich and powerful with no signs of sur maturite. Like the Blanc there is a freshness - no doubt a combination of the wonderful vintage conditions, vineyard management and classy winemaking. It speaks of fruit. No meaty, herbal, earthy characters. The palate is silky with lovely mouthfeel. There is more than a little Chateauneuf character which comes as no surprise. This is a quality Cotes-du-Rhone with plenty to offer. Vintages like 2016 are where you should buy up. The lack of alcohol combined with refreshing acidiy ensures a balance that will allow the wine to age beautifully over 5-10 years.
