    Bush vines grown organically in granite soil are handpicked on mountain slopes. Cinsault, Shiraz, and Grenache grapes are chilled overnight and fermented in open concrete tanks. The wine is left on it's lees for 7 months in cask, foudres, and concrete tanks. At bottling it is lightly filtered, but not fined. The nose is peppery, spicy, and has notes of ripe red fruit. The wine is smooth with present tannins and a dry finish. You'll want another sip immediately!
