(organic, biodynamic practice)
A blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan to give the wine more body and flavour.
Although I, as a Pinot Noir drinker, would substitute this wine for any meal requiring a Pinot Noir, in the blink of an eye.
In the glass, an inviting red has been fermented in concrete tanks and rested in stainless tanks before bottling offering pure dark ripe fruit on the nose with hints of spice and earth.
In the mouth, the wine is pleasantly ripe and not overly sweet with good fruit tannins offering a little grip, with a broad array of dark fruits laced with a little spice, offering some concentration and a hint of complexity to this very easy drinking Côtes du Rhone.
This is a Côtes du Rhône, which I think Pinot drinkers will enjoy.
From – The hilly village of Visan.
Few wines from Visan are seen in Australia.
Visan was granted Côtes du Rhône Villages appellation status in 1966.
the Rot has set in.
As sacrilegious as this may sound after a glowing review of this wine.
I enjoyed the wine with a quality Lamb burger from a shop in Clarendon St.
The lightly herbed juicy lamb burger and the fresh crusty bread roll worked incredibly well with the dark fruit and light acid in the wine.
