WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
Simon Tyrell is not just a friend but a great guy. 80% Grenache, 12% Carignan, 8% Syrah, Counoise & Cinsault. This wine is a representation of the wineries three vineyards around the villages of St. Nazaire, St Gervais and Vénéjan. Deep and rich in colour, this wine is full of black fruits, spices and a hint of black olive. Full and round on the palate with fine, ripe tannins and a fresh, vibrant finish.

ABOUT THE WINERY
For the past 10 years Simon Tyrrell and Charles Derain have been working with one of the most progressive and respected Co-ops in France, Cave d’Estezargues based in the Southern Rhone near Avignon. The Co-operative began a small revolution in the ‘Co-op’ world in 1995. The ten growers began a program of vinifying their wines from the best sites, separately. This evolved further when they became one of the first to follow largely ‘natural’ processes in their wine making. They opted to use natural yeasts and followed organic practices. Wherever and whenever possible they shunned filtering and fining of the wine.
