£20.95

QUEL MARIAGE! Translated from French – what marriage, what a coupage, what a harmony! This is a dare “rule breaking” coupage of the most typical Bordeaux (Merlot) and Rhone Valley (Syrah) varieties which is recognized as one of the best expressions of South Sakar mountain’s terroir for the last decade.

Style: Savoury & Complex

Grape Varieties: 60% Merlot & 40% Syrah

Ageing: The Merlot is aged in stainless steel tanks only and the Syrah around 3 years in used Bulgarian, Hungarian and French oak barrels of different sizes (225l, 400l and 500l).

Tasting Notes: Intense notes of ripe plums, cherries and spices on the notes. Juicy and elegant body with notes of dark fruits, leather, liquorice, matured and very well integrated tannins with abundance of cassis and tobacco on the finish. 

Food Match: Game dishes, Lamb, BBQ, Matured cheeses.

Wild fermented using only indigenous yeast from the vineyard naturally existing on the skins of the grapes.
