We've been working with winemaker Jeff Carrel since the 1990s. Born in Paris, he trained as a chemist, then fell in love with winemaking. His home turf and deep love is for southern France, just outside Carcassonne in fact. There vines grow at a reasonably high altitude, in a cooler climate to obtain just the ripeness Jeff is after. He is renown for being something of an eccentric, "effervescent and highly energetic, the bounciest winemaker we've ever met" said a South African colleague! He channels this energy into making great wines, as you'll taste here. No time for rules, he blends here Cabernet Franc and Syrah to create a lovely silky red, full of raspberry fruit. Great on its own or with grilled meats or a herby vegetable bake.

"A raspberry-scented beauty. Nuances of tobacco leaf, silky tannins and plenty of length" Joe Czerwinski
