(2019) A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Cinsault and 10% Syrah from 25-year-old vines, this is a medium peachy-pink colour and has an overtly fruity nose, pomegranate and redcurrant, small and little peppery berries. In the mouth there is a sense sweetness here, perhaps a touch of residual sugar, and plenty of summery, mixed berries character along with a cool, clean acid balance to finish on a savoury note.
(2016) There's a touch of copper to the colour of this Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah blend, and a dry, vinous nose, not overtly fruity, and very different from many more up-front pink styles, with a touch of tobacco and briar. On the palate dry and food-friendly, apple and lemon and understatement. Dry, cleansing but doesn't leap out of the glass.
(2013) 14.0%, Cork. From the 2011 vintage, 60% Grenache is joined by 30% Cinsault, 7% Syrah and 3% Mourvèdre. Medium-deep in colour and showing a little more peachy softness in hue, the vinous nose has a touch of rhubarb, cherry and redcurrant fruit and a dry, vinous appeal. There's something a little briary on the palate, and that higher alcohol adds a little more robust heat, in a rosé that is very much a food wine I think - roast poultry being perhaps a good match.
