Tessellae 2018 is produced from Old Vines Carignan and is a medium-bodied Côtes Catalanes red from the Roussillon wine region. Fragrant and spicy on the nose with anise, pepper spice and ripe blue fruit aromas. Dry and silky on the palate with red currant, blueberry, plum, anise, pepper spice and savoury herb flavours finishing long and supple.

Carignan food pairings: stuffed beef braciole, venison stew, sharp aged cheddar.
