GRAPE VARIETIES: 60% Syrah – 40% Grenache
SOIL: Château Rivière is located on old schist and limestone terraces in Peyriac, Languedoc.
South orientated, centenary vines associated to young vines of Syrah and Grenache give fine and well balanced grapes.
TASTING NOTES: This wine, with a garnet-red color, develops blackberries and blackcurrants aromas with hints of grilled almonds and vanilla.
VINIFICATION: A manual harvest and carbonic maceration is used for the old vines.
The aromatic varietals are vinified in pre-fermentation to extract long, blended and silky tannins so they give all their expression to the grapes.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Served at 18°C, this wine will match perfectly with meats in sauce and cheeses.
