We love this because...

Donovan’s take on a Southern Rhone Grenache/Syrah blend is a straight up classic, very perfumed with elements of violet and black pepper complementing a core of bright cherry and blackberry fruit. Supremely versatile, the Rall Red is great in isolation but pairs superbly with a wide range of foods – for me it is a natural match for lamb.

Once back in the winery the grapes under a slow fermentation using natural yeasts and with very gentle pump-overs after which the wine is sent to older barrels to mature before blending and bottling. Overall this builds a wines that offers both generous ripe dark fruit flavours and refreshing acidity and elegant tannins – delicious now but for those with patience (and a cellar) this will reward waiting a couple of years.
