Pâtisserie du Vin Grenache-Syrah-Merlot

Our Grenache-Syrah-Merlot is rich, ripe and fruity and draws on the Clafoutis - a traditional French flan like cherry cake, as its inspiration. Black cherry and raspberry balanced with spicy vanilla and a hint of mocha and toasty oak, lead to a long, smooth and creamy finish.

Perfect with...

Sticky barbecue pork ribs, duck, soft creamy cheeses or even chocolate! But also heavenly on its own… enjoy!

If you enjoy the technical side of wine production, please read on…

The grapes are harvested at optimum ripeness in order to extract the ripe aromas and flavours. We use a traditional vinification process for the Grenache, the Merlot and a portion of the Syrah, with the juices being fermented for about 10 days in temperature-controlled vats at 25°C (77°F). The remaining Syrah grapes are pressed after being heated and vinified in French oak. The wines are then blended together and aged in French and American oak.
