From the warm vineyards of the Languedoc comes this absolute stormer of a wine. I love finding wines that I know I can just sit with a large glass of with a good book or zonked out in front of the TV and they will just evaporate. Perfect mid –week wine, screwtop bottle so those of you with will power can just enjoy a good glass and savour another the next night.
I can do no better in describing this wine than use the shipper’s tasting notes.
‘A wine of real presence and character named after the olive groves, ‘oliviers’ that flourish around the sun-drenched vineyards of southern France. Grapes come from two separate plots of Merlot and Mourvèdre to produce this lusciously fruity red wine with a slightly wild edge. The intense red berry fruit aromas are backed up by a touch of pepper. A supple palate with smooth integrated tannins, lead to a rich satisfying finish.’
