Bonny Doon Vin Gris de Cigare
On the nose, subtle suggestions of rose hips, linden flower, black currant as well as a slightly toastiness (methinks perhaps due to the extended bâtonnage and lees contact). On the palate, wonderful bracing natural acidity, good weight and comforting viscosity. Some discreet floral and fruity suggestions, (mostly ribes with background black-cherry notes).
38.5% Grenache, 30.5% Grenache Blanc, 12.5% Carignane, 10% Cinsaut and Mourvèdre, Picpoul and Vermentino
