2016 LE SECRET de Saint Pierre Cotes De Provence Rose
From a vineyard that dates back to the 11th Century but more recently run by the past four generations
of the Victor family.  The vineyard stretches from the Argens river up to the foot of the Maures mountains and is planted to Grenache and Cinsault for the rose wines.  Delicious!

2015 Parcell 77 Jumilla Spain
Intense red cherry in colour, with a supple palate of ripe red fruits and spice and generous, yet sweet, tannins. All held together by a nice touch of vanilla from the 4 months in American oak.  Made from Monastrell aka Mourvedre and Mataro,  and blended with Syrah and Petit  Verdot.  A good alternative to Malbec if you wish to discover something different, from one of the hottest regions in Spain.  International Wine Guide Awards. Gold
