"Brilliant orange-pink. Vibrant orange zest and red currant scents, along with suggestions of succulent herbs and lavender. Fleshy, spicy and dry, offering bitter orange pith and red berry flavors that are given lift and cut by a core of juicy acidity. Lingers with good, mineral-driven persistence, leaving a slightly warm tangerine note behind."
"Grenache 50%, Cinsault 30%, Syrah 20% from sandy, loam soils of the Coteaux d'Aix en Provence. Named after the Abbey of Saint Victor, whose monks purchased the property in the eleventh century. The monks worked the abbey and cultivated grapes for wine making. Winemaker Laurent Breban farms the vineyards according to organic methods. Certified Organic by AB Agriculture Biologique." ~ Winery Notes
