2014 VDF 'Bottle Neck'
50% Grenache Noir (25-year old vines) and 50% Syrah (30-year old vines), grown on sandy loam soils in Saint André. 15-days carbonic maceration, followed by pressing, and then aged for 6 months in old barriques. Bottled by gravity.
Very fresh and vibrant - the carbonic maceration gives it that lift. You get violets and wild herbs, blackberries and black cherries - this is extremely delicious and smashable, but still packs depth. Great value - so much flavour in these wines!
