Juice bomb ALERT! Wine number two from young french maverick Lori Haon whose wines we tasted at a recent tasting and have really impressed us with the amount of flavour and complexity.
BABAR is The Colour is a 50% Viognier, 25% Merlot and 25% Syrah blend that are macerated together as whole bunches for a week before pressing and ageing in tank. The result, nothing short of spectacular, full of juicy red fruits with a touch of parma violets on the finish, this is one to be chilled and stacked up for summer!
