Côtes du Rhône Cave d’Estézargues
Only natural yeast fermentations are employed and sulphur levels are kept to an absolute minimum. Neither is there any fining or filtration on any of the red wines. Being one of the warmer pockets of the southern Rhône, the vines tend not to be under too much threat from rot and the crop arrives at the cellar in a healthy condition, which helps negate the use of additives; the natural alcohol and tannins within the wines adding to their stability.
50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvédre blend gives a medium bodied wine with forward pepper and spice notes, a touch of liquorice and sweet fruit moving through to a mouth covering tarry finish.
