Calling this the estate’s ‘second’ wine does it a disservice, as it’s drinking beautifully now (and has another few years of evolution ahead). A blend of 60% Syrah, 25% Grenache and 15% Carignan. Aged in large French and Austrian oak casks, this is a full bodied but supple and deeply fruity red, with notes of garrigue herbs - fennel and sage. Some definite salinity here, too - hints of lobster shells.
