  • On the nose, all the exoticism you'd expect of the grape variety, with ripe peach, pineapple and even a touch of lychee.  This wine offers much more precision and freshness with a honeysuckle delicacy and wonderful saline, mineral line that runs through the palate, holding things together .  Deliciously viscous in texture, but with plenty of juicy acidity to cut through the sheer weight of the fruit.  The use of oak is beautifully judged.  
  • The emphasis is firmly in the vineyard, with a sustainable approach, avoiding chemicals in all but the most severe vintages.
  • François Merlin is one of the most exciting names in the Northern Rhône today, producing elegant Syrah and Viognier.
  • Pairs nicely with prawns in a creamy sauce, chicken and mango salad, or a hearty fish curry.  
  • Can be enjoyed when released, but has potential to age for up to 5 years.
