Domaine Grier Odyssea 2019
A typical red blend of the Roussillon Region (Shiraz (50%), Carignan (30%), Grenache (20%) blend). The wine clearly expresses the minerality and spice expected from the vineyard and it is supported by fruit and a hint of aniseed. It is naturally fresh with good palate weight and balance. The name refers to the odyssey (journey) of the Grier family from SA to France to make wine.
- Shiraz aged in French oak barrel for 1 year (30% new wood): bring spiciness to the wine.
- Carignan: Freshness
- Grenache: fruit (berries and black cherries)
Well balanced between the spiciness and the fruit, good structure, and fresh long finish. Ideal with lamb, steak, meaty pasta dishes (Bolognese, lasagna), Tapas, Boeuf Bourguignon, Cassoulet.
Produced in the Roussillon Region of France from vineyards owned by Villiera Wines South Africa
