Garance is a natural dye, made from herbs found in the vines, that produces a deep red colour, hence the name. Made from the oldest parcels of vines (70yrs) on
Julie Paolucci’s property this wine was vinified in amphora, then aged in cement. It has spicy black fruits on the nose with plums, Provencal herbs, all with a very digeste quality and fine-grained tannins. Beautifully concentrated, worth decanting for an hour or so allowing the full spectrum of aromas to release.
