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.

About This Wine...

 

Surprisingly light and delicate red considering where it comes from Mid cherry red, juicy with lovely red fruit and orange notes. Succulent, fresh and lifted. Has an almost herbal freshness on the palate. Very long and captivatingly dry. It is delicious now but well made Cinsault can age very well indeed.

The grapes are vinified separately in stainless steel tanks, maceration lasts 12 days then the wine is bottled unfiltered and unfined. Ageing takes place in 3rd fill Burgundy barrels for 12 months. Bottles produced – 1350.
