TASTING NOTES

Described by John Seccombe as a “red Rocking Horse” that satisfies his desire to work with Grenache, this impressive blend also includes 21% Cinsaut and 10% Mourvèdre. Floral and zesty, with rose petal and raspberry aromas, it’s a deceptively light red with more backbone than you think.
