18/02/2019 – The Pepper Pot Red 2015

(2019) An aptly named blend of mostly Syrah with Mourvèdre, Grenache and – surprise surprise – Tannat, the great grape of Madiran that’s rarely seen in a ‘GSM’ blend. Very appealing on the nose, with white pepper indeed, spice and a soulful depth of berry fruit. In the mouth a generous, rich and smooth wine, overflowing with dark fruits, sweet and ripe tannins, a discreet acidity and plenty of creamy and ripe flavours to make it wildly crowd-friendly – and a banker for this summer’s barbies. Watch the video for more information and food-matching ideas.
