Grape Variety: Syrah, Grenache
Style: Dark fruits and spice\
This great little wine from the Pyranean foothills is made from the young Syrah and Grenache vines of Domaine Fontanel but with the exceptional care afforded to their whole range. No oak was used for maturation so the wine has plenty of pure fruit flavours and as the maceration was relatively short (about two weeks) it has not taken on bold tannins. That is not to say that it doesn't have some power and the price notes on the palate make ths a perfect partner to grilled or roasted meats, game birds wild boar. A fantastic wine for the money.
