This wine is dedicated to Florence’s grandfather, or in french, “Grand Pere”, who was a small vigneron in France many years ago. It is made using a high percentage of shiraz, mourvedre and grenache pressings. Pressings, where the press is cut off before any coarse flavours are extracted from the seeds, often have the most flavour and robust tannin of the wine. Pressings can be astringent when young, but when matured in new french oak and old french oak barrels the wine gains softness and complexity and is well suited to bottle ageing.

This limited production wine was mainly produced for restaurants and cellar door.

    I’m looking forward to the next vintage release.

    The best red I’ve tasted in this price range in a long time

    The Grand-Pere certainly left a smile on my face – this is a big wine but also very easy on the palate – smooth & yum.

  5. Sam Test

    A very complete, medium, full-bodied wine with youthful freshness that is virtually irresistible. Starts out with red fruit aromas and a top note of lush ripeness with underlying umami, savoury dried rosemary offering fresh balance. Silky red fruits rush the front palate with a subtler, longer, slower mineral quality showing in the drying medium-intense tannins.Rob Geddes MW Fitness First Magazine
