Costières de Nîmes "Galets" Rouges
Predominately Syrah from younger vines, with Grenache, Mourvèdre, Marselan, and old vine Carignan making up the final blend.
The wine-making process is traditional: after a maceration period of 8 – 15 days, the wine is matured for 7 to 12 months in epoxy lined concrete tanks in order to best preserve its natural fruitiness. No added yeasts or sulfur during vinification or aging.
Deep ruby with purple hues; aromas of cherry, blackberry, and soft spices lingering through the finish. Full-bodied with a good acidity and character. Tannins are subtle and smooth. This wine matches perfectly with Italian or Mediterranean cuisine such as pasta dishes, pizza or grilled lamb, but also stands up to tasty meat such as barbecue ribs or duck breast. Very good served at room temperature during the winter, it can also be lightly chilled in summer. Enjoy now and over 2 to 4 years.
