Tasting notes:

On the nose, this wine offers notes of grasses and herbs from the “garrigue” and scrubland that surround the vineyards, along with cherry aromas. These aromas combine with hints of toasting on the palate.

The velvety structure offers a touch of freshness and full flavours that linger in the mouth.

Serving suggestions:

This wine may be served with Mediterranean dishes made with black tapenade or preserved vegetables (such as a vegetable tian), lamb chops grilled with herbs or family meals such as shepherd’s pie or salt pork with lentils. In winter it’s best served between 17 and 18°C, while in summer it should be slightly cooler at between 15 and 17°C.
