A soft and gentle style, with lavender, mulled cherry, garrigue and rooibos tea notes, all framed by a light sandalwood edge. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2022. 5,500 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
Mainly Grenache (90%), the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape was matured in stainless steel and concrete. It's full-bodied, lush and creamy, without that much richness or depth but with plenty of raspberry and cherry fruit, subtle garrigue shadings and dried spices. It's easy to like and easy to drink.
