2018 Harmonie

70% Grenache, 16% Syrah and 14% Mourvedre

Alert for the fans, when we started the blends decisions back in December 2019, we tried about 12 combinations, it was hard, but the result is outstanding, close to perfect. The 2018 vintage dominance is Grenache (70%) blended with a little more Syrah this year (16%) and the rest with the Mourvèdre just brought all the ingredients for perfection. Plus, in the mouth the spices, hints of herbs, the velvety feeling, the elegant complex and freshness, a common note in the wines for the 2018 vintage. It has aged mainly in neutral larger barrels for 16 months as well.

The optimum cellaring can be up to 10+ Years, this bright blend could be open in the next 2 years up to 10. The ideal temperature to serve with a 3 to 4 hours decanting will be around 60F.
