This is an interesting blend from the Southern French AOC of Coteaux de Languedoc which is one of oldest wine regions of France with historical plantings traced back to the ancient Greek settlers. A relatively cheap purchase for a casual wine that is of good quality.
There’s a nice write-up about this winery here: http://rhoneobsession.blogspot.com.au/2012/01/domaine-de-nizas-2006-languedoc.html with an Australian link (Taltarni) too.
Intense inky ruby colour. Med+ youthful aromas of reduced cherry, pine and Provencal herbs. a blend of Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache (AOC regulations required at least 90% of these 3 grapes), it is a dry, med+-full bodied wine with flavours of kirsch and black plum, with a meaty texture. The acidity is balanced with tannins that are firm and ripe but do well not to jostle with the fruit. Drink now – 2015. 90/100.
I had a glass of this at Uni Melb’s University House, and I can’t remember the exact price, but I know it wasn’t expensive. Could probably find this at Dan Murphy’s.
