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. Very Chateauneuf du Pape in style and often quality... the best massively overdeliver on their price and are famous for their power... thus becoming magnets for bargain hunters! That said, most in NZ are priced between $35 and $55/bottle, so this stunner is out on its own quality v price at $19.99!

Smells

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

Tastes

Ripe, generous and beautifully layered, the palate is an explosion of berry fruits, with rounded tannins keeping all the opulence in focus. A beautifully affordable taste of one of the Rhone's most prestigious appellations, it lives up to its name capturing "the spirit of the valley". Drink now to 2023
