Ferraton Père et Fils Gigondas Les Murailles 2016

The Ferraton Père & Fils Gigondas Les Murailles is a souther Rhône red wine dominated by the Grenache grape alongside the Syrah and Mourvèdre. Aged in oak barrels and vats for up to 15 months the Les Murailles Gigondas displays complex aromas of very ripe sour cherries, light spices and black pepper. The palate offers up flavours of very ripe small red berries, spice and garrigue with smooth tannins. This is a rich and long-lasting red wine.
