Sourced from the devigorated soils of western Greenock, Les Amis is a testament to what only the most fastidious farming can achieve - purity, intensity and finesse.
A multi layered perfume of violets, kirsch and concentrated red berry aromas with a succulent, dense and vibrant fruit intensity. The concentration, poise and elegance is perfectly balanced and typical of this unique terroir.
Revealing a savoury elegance in its youth, the Les Amis will continue to build in complexity for many years to come.
An above average winter rainfall led into a below average spring and summer rainfall, producing small bunches and small berries, leading to a reduced yield. Quality was certainly high, particular amongst our red varieties of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro. 2018 wines will be remembered for their impressive colour, structure and longevity.
Les Amis Grenache 2018
Alluring and seductive aromatic red fruits such as sour cherry mulberry, red currant and wild raspberry. Secondary notes of Chinese five spice, sarsaparilla, star anise are balanced by wet earth and cinnamon spice. Cleansing acidity drives the finish fresh with plenty of mid palate texture. Old vine Grenache complexities and full-bodied depth with firm but balanced drying tannins give the wine plenty of time to mature in the cellar for 8-15 years
