Reserve De Fleur
Réserve de Fleur is a modern style, unoaked Côtes du Rhône, blended to reflect its origins in nearby historic Avignon in the hot southern Rhône Valley in France.
Made from mostly Syrah with smaller proportions of Grenache and Carignan, Réserve de Fleur has a clear, intense red colour and aromas of black and red currant. The wine is youthful and fresh in the mouth, with ripe, clean, bright fruit, backed up by the structure of delicate tannins. It is unfiltered for texture and its flavours of pepper and spice make it perfect with game stews, Mediterranean sausages, pasta or cheese fondue.
Delibo spent time with the vineyard to blend a wine that would appeal to the more sophisticated tastes of customers in the independent sector.
And it has a screwcap!
