Mas des Tannes Rouge No Added Sulphur, Languedoc-Roussillon, France 2020/21 75cl

A Carignan/Grenache/Mourvedre Blend.

(VG) A darkly coloured wine that opens with generous aromas of red and black berry fruits. On the palate there is a juicy, concentrated core with ripe, red fruit and a hint of spice from the Grenache, given added breadth by gentle vanilla tones. The ripe tannins and firm acidity support the fruit character and extend the long finish.

All of the vineyards are farmed organically with great emphasis on the overall health of the vines and working with reduced yields, and the vines are produced according to organic methods using natural vinification and restricted use of sulphur.

Though the world is more familiar with its French name (Grenache), Garnacha probably originated in the North of Spain. It is now found, under a host of regional names, in Sardinia (as Cannonau), Greece, Israel, North Africa, France, Spain and Cyprus. Adoring the Mediterranean sun, it can accumulate up to 16 degrees of potential alcohol while still on the vine. It thrives in hot, dry and windy conditions grown as a bush vine. Less typically for a warm climate grape it has a thin skin. This means it lacks, at least at normal yields, the depth of colour for many red wines, but makes it well-suited to soft and fruity rosés and rosatos. The concentrated fruit from old, low-yielding vines like those in Priorat and Châteauneuf-du-Pape can, however, give wines of powerful intensity and deep colour, which demand cellaring. Garnacha‘s affinity for hot hillsides has also led it to California and Australia, where it was the most-planted grape until it was overtaken by Shiraz in the 1960‘s.
