Syrah and Mourvèdre are grown exclusively on granite sites of higher density plantings with the most rugged of these at the very bottom of the Newton Johnson farm. Granite soil is known to bear fresh, precise and perfumed wines. Soft handling in the cellar and use of whole bunches and stems to add definition and length.
This is a fabulous addition to the newton Johnson range introducing a very Rhône like wine with clove, pepper and incense spices intertwined with sweet blackberry fruit and judicious oak.
