85% Cinsault, 15% Grenache. Rich spicy aroma with plums and blackberries, supple and fruity, ripe spice tinged fruit on the palate, lingering touches of chocolate and cassis
The Kildare-based winemaker is Simon Tyrrell, who has a degree in winemaking from Plumpton College in East Sussex, and has been making wine in the Rhône valley for five years now. More recently, with several colleagues in Ireland, he bought three hectares of vines in the southern Rhône. This is one of Simons newest wines, and such a nice change from the big, spicy reds you normally associate with the Rhone Valley.
