A special release celebrating the 100th year anniversary of the planting of this Mourvèdre vineyard. Up front we see notes of raspberry, iodine, red plum, mushroom and some green herbacious aromas. As the wine evolves in the glass we discover herbs of provence and some gamey animal and earthy flavours. There is a very lifted vibrancy to the wine due to the vine age. Fine and very savoury tannins. Give it time, this wine will become a show stopper.

Small batches of grapes are gently crushed and then transferred to open fermenters. Foot treading is undertaken two thirds of the way through fermentation, the wine is basket pressed and transferred to old French oak to complete fermentation. The barrel ferments are aged on lees, there is no racking until final blending and no fining or filtration.
