Wine from the Rhone Valley benefits from the Mediterranean climate in the region. It is in the south-east of France and follows the course of the river for nearly 150 miles, travelling from Lyon to the Bouches-du-Rhone at the Mediterranean Coast. The length of the valley means vines produced are widely varied in flavour and style.
The north and south sections of the valley produce hugely different types of wine. The northern sections of the valley focus closely on Syrah for red wine and Viognier, Roussanne and Marsanne for whites and are known for working in smaller, quality driven processes. The south of the Rhone is much more prolific in its production and has a much longer list of varietals at its disposal with Grenache and Mourvedre amongst the most popular. When combined with Syrah these two varietals are blended to create the GSM blend which the southern Rhone region is known for.
Pale gold colour with green hints. Nose of white flowers and aniseed. The palate fresh and sharp but well balanced with some richness. White flowers and aniseed hints are also found with a mineral note.
This wine is golden in colour with aromas of caramelised apples, fresh pears and waxy lemon peel. On the palate, it is rich and fresh with hints of spice. An elegant wine that has great depth and a long, lingering finish.
"Dark purple. Heady red and dark berry aromas are complicated by incense, fresh flowers, baking spices and minerals. Sexy strawberry and raspberry flavors offer a smooth, velvety texture and impressive depth. Finishes clean and brisk, with outstanding persistence. I love this style for its vivacity and precision."
Powerful and pure wine. Complex nose composed of the typical aromas from the grape variety. (Apricot, violet) interlaid with mineral aromas from the terroir and the roasted ones from the maturing. Straight and slim on the palate with a velvety touch. Few sweet spices at the final.
A beautiful example of this small but very distinctive appellation. The nose is laden with pear, peach and grape with hints of parsley and herbs. The palate is creamy and rich, full of stone fruits and notes of licorice. The acidity is zippy & the finish incredibly long & memorable.
This Organic C�tes-du-Rh�ne Blanc is a light yellow colour in the glass with delicate aromes of honeysuckle, lime zest and fleshy white peach. A blend of Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Roussanne and Marsanne, this wine offers an appealing bright stone fruit character and white pepper spice and a rounded texture.
A golden colour in the glass, this wine reveals elegant aromas of almonds, limes and white fruit on the nose. On the palate it is refined with citrus and peach flavours well-balanced with racy acidity.
