Winemaker's Notes:

The domaine's « Flagship » wines, evoking the Mediterranean in aroma and taste.

Possessing a beautiful garnet dress, this wine develops a bouquet of mature blueberry, spices and the scents of Garrigue evoking the Mediterranean in its perfumes and its flavors. Fresh in mouth, the wine then evolves with volume and roundness in a very beautiful balance. The finish is long, ending with a silky structure of perfectly ripe tannins. Ready to drink this wine will be, however, reach its height in 5 years.

Composed of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache Noir.

About Domaine de Nizas:

Domaine de Nizas is the new winemaking collaboration from John Goelet and Bernard Portet, co-founders in 1972 of Clos du Val in Napa Valley, California. John Goelet is also the owner of Taltarni Vineyards (Victoria, Australia) and Clover Hill (Tasmania).

On a manually tended 200 acre vineyard, they've created handcrafted limited-production wines since 1998. Their goal is to serve as a model in terms of elegance, complexity, balance and aging ability among Mediterranean wines.
