Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Le Mistral Whole Cluster Grenache is produced by fermenting intact clusters of grapes with minimal intervention. The results speak for themselves – exhibiting notes of mulberry, wild blackberry, and dried tobacco. The palate has fresh baking spice followed by silky tannins - reminding us of childhood memories of picking wild berries on a summer afternoon.
