Current vintage

2008

The response to our special 'Circle' release of the 2007 Grenache Mourvedre blend exceeded all of our expectations. With this in mind we have decided to treat you all to an encore performance. The soft and elegant 'Barrel Selection' was assembled in one of the small stainless steel tanks especially used to store small blends. 

Appearance

Cherry red.

Bouquet

Heady blend of red cherries, plums, mixed spice, tobacco leaf and candy apple.

Palate

A juicy palate of strawberries, cherries, plums and dried fig, beautifully finished by subtle, textural, slighty dusty tannins. A wine well matched with fine food.

Winemaking

Grenache & Mourvedre harvested from 14° Baumé and fermented on skins for 8 days and pressed to 1 to 4 -year-old French puncheons. A slow maturation has enhanced the texture while softening the tannins. The composition of the wine is Grenache 66% and Mourvedre 34%.

Technical analysis

  • Alcohol 14.5%

Ageing potential

While crafted for immediate appeal, this wine will develop over the next couple of years.
