Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer XAVIER
Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO. Bright extremely pale pink colour. Attractive, gently fruity, fresh cantaloupe nose with some faintly spicy, mineral notes. Dry, medium to medium-light bodied, light bodied, well balanced, vibrant, fresh, ripe, melon-cantaloupe flavours with a lingering, fairly crisp, unoaked, mineral-tinged finish. Ready-to-drink, this very pleasing organic blend of 40% Cinsault, 30% Mourvèdre, 20% Syrah and 10% Grenache has 13% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar. Very well priced, versatile and ready-to-drink.
