Winemaker's Notes

(From 2008 Vintage) Most Exciting Wine of The
Vintage
Warm, ripe, sweet red and black fruit with sun dried herbs on the
nose... intoxicating and hedonistic on the palate... this really is
very close to the mighty 2007 but in some ways it is more yielding, and will be
ready to be quaff as the 2007 lies dormant. It's like a Provençale
perfume: a beguiling essence of where it was grown. This is an estate on the
up.

(Simon Staples, Fine Wine Director)

The 2008 is made up of 46% Grenache, 34% Syrah, 14% Mourvèdre, 5%
Cinsualt and 1% intriguingly described as 'divers'. The wine has a
floral perfume and an elegant and beautifully balanced palate, with notes of
hedgerow and gentle spice to the fore and attractive velvety tannins providing
eloquent support.
