Why this wine made the cut…
Refreshing Southern French Hospitality that punches above its weight.
Provence, France
GRAPE VARIETAL(S)
Syrah
See-RA
Syrah is widely planted throughout the world, but that was not so until the late twentieth century when Syrah was principally grown in the Rhone Valley and, as Shiraz, in Australia. Stylistically, the Palate Character of Syrah can vary depending on ripeness from a rich Round & Fleshy, Tone & Backbone, to a Powerful & Extracted. The flavors and aromas can also vary with a dark, sometimes sweet, fruit character, varying amount of spice, floral, and earth, and smoke, and meaty aromas and flavors.
Cinsault
Sen-SO
Cinsaut is an underrated grape variety from Southern France because its proclivity for high yields. However, when yields are restricted, it can make fruit forward aromatic wines best suited for blends and/or fresh, perfumed and fruity rosé wines.
Grenache
Gruh-NASH
Grenache is widely planted throughout the world but some of the best expressions come from the southern Rhone, and in Spain’s Priorat. Grenache has small berries with thick grape skins resulting in dark, tannic wine in its youth combined with an almost ripe sweetness and elevated alcohol. Often part of a blend, Grenache offers a lot of fruit, spice, with floral and herbal notes.

The Peyrassol estate sits in the foothills of the Massif des Maures, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, with vineyards of dry, rocky clay and limestone soils. The rocky soil, dry climate, all add to restrictive yields.  

At Peyrassol the focus is to feature the best representation of the terroir, using only organic practices in the vineyards and gravity flow in the winery, yielding wines with not only great energy, but also a sense of place.
