The reds are made from the region´s predominant varieties:
Grenache, prone to "coulure" or poor flowering, is the maestro of Mediterranean varieties. It lends structure and complexity.
Syrah, with its rich aroma and intense colour making it indispensable for our blends, as well as being perfectly suited to our soil/climate conditions.
Mourvèdre, an average grower, cries out for warmth: it´s best suited to the zones in the south. It needs little but regular water supply. Its flavour intensity and quality develop as the wine matures.
Cinsault is quite rugged, needs plenty of warmth and tolerates drought and wind. With yields well under control (25 hectolitres / hectare), its aroma is surprisingly expressive tending to show squashed blackberry or forest-floor notes, and it has supple tannins.
