From the limestone terraces of IGP St Chinan comes Château Viranel’s ‘Tradition’ Rouge, a 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache Noir, 10% Mourvèdre, 10% Carignan blend. The wine owes its rich character in part to the grapes grown on hillsides with south west facing exposures, soaking up the rays and further maturing the vines which age in range from 30 to 90 years.
Deep ruby red with violet highlights, on the nose it is complex with griotte cherry, violet and licorice and at first taste it is refreshingly cool with blackcurrant aromas opening up into a rich and fleshy wine with velvety tannins and sublime mocha notes. Ready to drink now, it can be kept for 5 to 7 years during which time, deeper tertiary flavours will develop. A wine to pair with rich lamb stew or roast pork.
