Appearance: Bright, salmon pink.
Nose: Lifted cherry, strawberry and floral fruit characters.
Palate: Light to medium bodied. Refreshingly crisp, bursting with interesting toffee and spice characters emanating from 22 year old grenache vines. A subtle textural dry finish with lovely acid balance ensures this wine is ready to be enjoyed on release.
"This is the first release of this wine which takes its name from a ship which was part of a French expedition to WA that took possession in 1772. Light raspberry characters on the nose and palate from this beautiful, organically grown grenache. It's light and flavoursome with a crisp, fine acidity. Excellent summer drinking here. 91 points" - Ray Jordan, The West Australian, Oct 2019
