Domaine Du Grapillon D'or 2018 is produced from hand-harvested Grenache and Syrah wine grapes from the Gigondas wine region sourced from old and youthful vines. Fragrant with bright red berry, raspberry, dark cherry and licorice aromas on the nose, this is a dry, full-bodied silky wine with layers of raspberry, cherry, pepper and toasty oak spice flavours vibrant on the palate.

Food pairings: prime rib, hearty meat stews, pork tenderloin.
