    Such a wonderful red wine. So more-ish, so brightly flavoured and so easy to drink. This wine brings together traditional friends Grenache (88%), Shiraz (6%) and Mataro (3%) with just a tiny touch of Counoise and Carignan dropped in the mix. Sourced from old vines, picked by hand, the fruit was gently handled in the winery and aged in old French oak. We tend to pick early as we can for this wine so that we can create a very fresh, bright wine, with red fruits and lovely herbal characters. There’s a life to the palate, a nerve, a tension as well which elevates the intentionally light palate to a more serious place. The blend is put together with the idea that Grenache really is the hero, with Shiraz adding supporting flesh and the Mataro spice and structure/tannin. You'll try one bottle and you're almost certain to buy more. So good.

    A quintessential southern French blend of Grenache (88%), flecks of shiraz, mataro, counoise and the tiniest smidgeon of the high acid variety, carignan. This is a pallid ruby, segueing to tangy red fruit references across every variety imaginable and chalky, gentle tannins, lacing together the riot of flavour. Judicious use of bunches. The gentle whir of wood smoke, tangerine and scattered dried herb across the finish imbues further complexity. This is a ‘thrills with a chill' sort of quaffer. Scrumptious wine.

    Grenache (88%), Shiraz (6%), Mataro (3%), Counoise (2%), Carignan (1%). I/we seemed to have missed the 2018 Junto, though sometimes it’s hard to keep up.

    Crisp and crunchy light-bodied wine. Raspberry, red cherry, black olive rolled in herbs. A little rasp of tannin, could possibly take a little chill, saline and dry with moderate length. Freshness and ease of drinking is on offer.

    This has very attractive raspberries and a lightly peppery edge with such bright, supple and fruit-focused style on the palate. Deliciously supple, pure expression of regional style. Red done right. Drink now. Screw cap.
