55% grenache, 20% each of shiraz and mourvedre, 5% cinsaut, each vinified separately. Hand-picked, bunch-sorted on vibrating tables, open-fermented, 10-14 days on skins, matured in large format French oak. Tangy, zesty, supple red and black fruits, slinky tannins just so.
The 2016 RP2 shows a particularly complex nose of liquored cherries, assorted spices, liquorice and rich berry fruits. With time in the glass, this wine begins to unveil its true potential, becoming more and more expressive. On the palate this wine is fresh and lively, showing a wide fruit spectrum of both red and dark fruits. It has beautifully balanced grainy tannins to match the intensity of flavour. The RP2 is of medium body and exhibits excellent length and persistence.
