La Galine is a single vineyard located in one of the best terriors in the heart of the Minervois appellation. Bright ruby colour. The floral hint of violets proceed the rich aroma and flavour of raspberry and cranberry. Excellent mouthfeel and firm finish of fine, soft tannins.
Deep dark fruits emerging from a veil of sandalwood, smoke and game.
Bottled un-fined and un-filtered the wine retains a touch of rusticity with a serious tannin beckoning you back for more. There’s a saline nuance that rocks with lamb, feta and olive.
Dense garnet-black in the glass, with a youthful bouquet of red and black plum, florals, a hint of spice and black pepper. It’s ripe and velvety on the palate with excellent full fruit intensity, all framed within polished tannins. In TOP 12 NZ SYRAH Gourmet Traveller 2014 94/100
