Product Overview

 

 2009 Les Amis

Sourced from the devigorated soils of western Seppeltsfield, Les Amis is a testament to what only the most fastidious farming can achieve~

purity, intensity and finesse.

Possessing a dense, saturated ruby/purple hue the Les Amis flaunts the concentration, poise and panache of which only the greatest terroirs are gifted.

Delicate scents of Chinese five spice, smoke, white flowers and roasted herbs precede a dense, brooding core of black cherry, coal and scorched earth.

The well delineated palate offers tremendous texture and combines glorious fruit purity with subtle nuances.

Multi-dimensional and incredibly intricate, the wine finishes with crisp acids and a cloak of beautifully ripe, polished tannins.

Revealing a savoury elegance in its youth, the Les Amis will continue to build in complexity for many years to come.

"I was honoured when my good friend Ignatius Chan asked me

to make a wine for his renowned Singapore establishment.

This unique parcel of Grenache, sourced from an old vineyard,

has successfully endured eighteen months

maturation in new French barrique"
