About

The energetic and charismatic Guillaume Gonnet is not your average Rhône winemaker. Extremely open in his attitude, his curious, boundary challenging approach extends beyond wine. He travelled to the far ends of the earth, revelling in the opportunity to surf some of the best waves in the world while learning his craft in various Australian and New Zealand regions. Returning to the Rhône, now with his Australian wife Kelly, he has shown similar energy for his family estate and for his own nascent project. This land locked surfer may be miles from the ocean but is happily riding the wave of new found enthusiasm for Grenache based wines. Pursuing biodynamics wherever possible, allowing his fruit to express itself freely through hands-off winemaking and displaying his fascination for the varying soils of the Rhône through his diverse range of wines, he's just the sort of restless creative that we love to work with. Viticulture- South East facing vineyards, the soil is a mix of limestone, clay and sand. Vines have an average age of 45 years. Winemaking- 20 days fermentation and maceration in concrete tank, aged in concrete tank. No oak treatment.

Style and Values

  • Style:   Still
  • Closure:   Natural Cork
  • ABV:   14.5%
  • Country:   France
  • Vint:   2017
  • Food Match :   Something classic like a nut roast and root vegetables served with a red wine jus or a slow cooked Indian curry. The lovely spicy notes at the end of the palate make it a great wine to accompany these rich, fragrant dishes.  Works well with lamb.
  • Tasting Notes:  

    This wine is a gorgeous balance of power and elegance. Big, juicy fruit flavours dominate this wine; fig, blueberries, blackberries, flattered by delicious notes of dark chocolate. Slight hints of violet coming through from the Syrah and little spiciness on the finish.

  • Grape Types:   Grenache, Syrah
