52% Grenache – 28% Syrah – 20% Mourvèdre

The trick in creating this blend is to stay true to its Cote du Rhône roots by keeping it light, and fruit-forward.

Grenache, the work-horse of Rhône varietals provides the core of red fruit, strawberry, cherry, and hints of leather. Syrah adds the bass notes with deep, dark fruit and spices. Finally, Mourvèdre brings it all together with acidity and herbaceous notes of flower petal and pepper.

This is the wine to pair with lighter fare such as pork and chicken or duck. It works particularly well with bolder cuisines such as Asian and Thai. We’ll be enjoying ours with Sticky Asian Glazed Chicken Thighs.
