Saint-Amant ‘Les Clapas’ comes from the highest vineyards in the whole of the Rhone, at 500 metres.
Exceptionally perfumed, with a hint of violet, fresh berry fruits with amazing garrigues herbs
A very traditional Cotes du Rhone in style, with a clear lean towards that lovely, deep Grenache character. Grenache 50%, Syrah 40%, Mourvedre 10%.
Lovely bright nose with hints of cranberry and mint. On the palate, a gorgeous soft Grenache texture, fresh and juicy with an attractive fruit-forward style. Delicious and approachable.
A wine discovered after Robin and Richard took a precipitous journey through Condrieu. Risking life and limb, they happily survived the journey and came back to Swig HQ, victoriously wielding this gem aloft.
A beautiful, perfumed and dainty Chateauneuf, with poise that utterly belies it's 15% abv. Such a refreshing style in the sea of mediocrity that is Chateauneuf du Pape.
