Clos de L’Amandaie, AOP Grés de Montpellier, Amandaie Rouge, 2018

Only red wine is permitted in the AOP Grés de Montpellier. This is a blend of 33% Grenache 33% Syrah, 25% Carignan and 9% Cinsault. The Syrah spends time in old oak barrels whilst the rest of the blend is left in concrete. Very classic notes of garrigue and red fruit dominate the nose. The Syrah adds a touch of richness and dark fruit on the palate and there is an almost minty freshness on the finish. The tannins are grainy and fine. This would be brilliant with a leg of lamb.
