Rex Mundi is a sumptuous red that always fires the senses. A devilishly delicious blend of spice-laden, lip-staining Shiraz and plummy Grenache from very deep in southern France. Irresistible for lovers of exceedingly dense, fruit rich reds.
This irresistible black beauty is made from fabulously intense Shiraz and Grenache grapes grown on the craggy hillsides of France’s deep south – the Roussillon. Look up from the vines and you will see ruins of castles perching precariously on rocky peaks. This inhospitable landscape and these ancient strongholds were home to medieval Cathars who lived in awe of evil god Rex Mundi (‘King of the World’). He corrupted the faithful with promises of earthly pleasures and the forbidden delights of mortal flesh. But behind the wine is a very kind soul - Hervé Sabardeil, our ‘King of the Black Reds’. Don’t even try to resist the temptation of this red, just sip and enjoy its luscious ripe marriage of liquorice-scented Shiraz and luscious Grenache.
"Delighted with this delicious red, bursting with fruity flavours and great with pizza or meats"
