Producer Profile

These wines really are “The Dog’s”. A cracking red and white pair from the North Catalan region (as we like to call it), but more usually described as Roussillon, deep in southern France.

Viticulture

From the Catalunya Nord, otherwise know as the Roussillon, this delightful fruity red wine is created from a field blend of Carignan and Grenache Noir, both of which are native to the region. The soils are composed of clay and silt.

Winemaking

A traditional red wine fermentation in stainless steel without carbonic maceration.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment.

Tasting Note

A deep cherry red with burgundy highlights. Slightly smoky on the nose, the grenache adds it’s trademark black berry flavours and a hint of garrigue whilst the Carignan gives this vibrant colour, lovely tannins and fresh acidity. Cranberry, strawberry and raspberry are evident as well as subtle notes of floral notes such as rose petal and violets. Excellent length and tannins.

Food Matching

Rack of lamb, pork and chicken.
