Description

Upgraded from Côtes du Rhône Villages status to its own fully-fledged appellation in 1990, Vacqueyras red wines must be 80% Grenache by law. The wines are famous for their power and have become magnets for bargain hunters, often massively overdelivering on their price. That said, most in NZ are priced between $35 and $55/bottle, so buy this beauty by the case!

Smells

A brooding and fruit-filled nose, showing raspberry, blackberry, liquorice, chocolate and dried herbs.

Tastes

Ripe, generous and beautifully detailed, the palate is an explosion of berry fruits, with nice tannic structure keeping all the rowdy fruit in check. A beautifully affordable look at one of the Rhone's most prestigious appellations, it lives up to its name and captures "the spirit of the valley". Drink now to 2023.
