A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: This wine is made from Grenache and Cinsault naturally grown without the use of industrial herbicides or insecticides. Beautiful aromas of spring meadow, apricot and nectarine paint a vivid picture and echo nicely in the flavours. The palate is tangy and bright with a lovely, smooth texture enlivened by a slight petillance. Chill and sip with grilled seafood or herbed chicken. (VINTAGES panel, May 2017) Price $ 18.95
