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.

Tasting Notes

The grapes were hand harvested and then vinified separately in stainless steel tanks. 100% de-stemming. Daily, gentle pump overs and cap submersion. Maceration lasted 10 days. The Carignan was aged in 3rd fill 228 litre French oak barriques, the Syrah in older 600 litres demi-muids and the Grenache in tank for a period of 12 months. The wine was bottled unfiltered and unfined.

A pronounced nose of plums, blackberries and violets. Medium bodied with a silky fine texture. Round tannins, refreshing acidity and a long finish. 4,300 bottles were produced.
