Vintages Wine Panel: One of Saint-Chinian’s strongest producers, Château du Prieuré des Mourgues takes Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre and barrel-ages them separately for 12 months. The final blend accentuates the fruit of the Syrah, the pretty cedar tones of the Grenache, the backbone of the Mourvèdre, plus the vanilla from the oak to create this finely made, food-friendly wine. My note: Love the cedar-savoury black cherries here! Full-bodied and smooth with loads of flavour and depth. Give this overlooked region a try: you’ll be delighted.

Food pairings: grilled leg of lamb with garlic and rosemary.
