Description

Sourced from four and half hectare across the estates holdings. The blend reflects the house style with 5% Viognier. The wine is from a riper year it is showing well now. Lovely aromatics, refined and elegant. This wine is just approaching it’s drinking window.

Founded in 1860 and on the 7th generation working the land. In 1974 they begin bottling their entire production and have never looked back. From Cote Rotie, St-Joseph and Condrieu they make traditional wines which means natural yeast, no destemming, large format old oak for aging. The wines are bold, earthy, structured and delicious.

Rhone Valley – One of the great wine regions in the world. Situated along the Rhone river in South East France there is a distinct divide between the Syrah dominant North where the Mistral wind cools and regulates the temperature and the hot lands in the South where Grenache is at its peak. The region produces everything from easy going quaffers to wines that demand long term cellaring. Whites can be outstanding such as Viognier made in Condrieu and Rosé makes a fair impression too

Cote Rotie – The roasted slope. It is the rockstar region of the Northern Rhone which specialises in Syrah occasionally supported by some Viognier. The traditional wines tend to be lean, bony, savoury while the modern wines are ripe, powerful and oaky. Both styles tend to command a high price.

Shiraz/Syrah – A bit of a chameleon, Shiraz can change how it looks depending on terroir and/or wine maker influence. The Syrah based wines of Northern Rhone are dry and austere while the Shiraz of Barossa is rich and fleshy. A variety that lends itself to long aging but can be drunk at any time of its evolution.
