The Wine

JUNTO (Spanish, Portuguese): ‘Together’

Grenache (68%), Shiraz (10%), Mataro (9%), Carignan (7%), Cinsault (5%), Counoise (1%).

A Southern Rhone style blend that is intended to be unpretentious and an easy to drink, bistro style. The Grenache leads the blend with its pretty red fruits and perfume, and the more interesting varieties bring complexity, with spice and structure from the Mataro and herbal notes from the Carignan. The fruit is all picked by hand, is handled gently in the winery, and is fermented and aged in old oak.

The Review

"Crisp and crunchy light-bodied wine. Raspberry, red cherry, black olive rolled in herbs. A little rasp of tannin, could possibly take a little chill, saline and dry with moderate length. Freshness and ease of drinking is on offer." 91Pts, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
