Orenia Rhone Rouge 2013
It shows a dark purple color, candied black fruit and spice aromas and the violet notes typical of the best Syrah wines. The harvest (mechanical) takes place early September in order to keep a nice balance between freshness and richness, guaranteeing a good aging potential. The juice ferments on the skins for two weeks, in cement tanks, at controlled temperature. Frequent pumping is done to extract fine tannins and the aromatic potential of the wine. The final blend requires 20% Grenache. The fruity cherry and spice notes and the roundness characteristic of this grape makes for an harmonious and easy drinking wine. Try it with lamb or veal. It also works well with Ratatouille!
Wine SpectatorJuicy raspberry and black cherry fruit flavors are carried by pebbly tannins, picking up lively tobacco and anise accents through the finish. Tasty.
