TASTING NOTES

John Seccombe uses whole bunch fermentation on the Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah portions of the blend, but not on the Cinsault component. Light, graceful yet wonderfully focused and detailed, this has rose petal, red cherry and raspberry flavours, negligible oak and fine, savoury tannins.
