Clos des Fous Cauquenina 2013

The 2013 “Cauquenina” is made from a blend of grapes – all from old vineyards. The blend is made up of Carignan (50%), Syrah, Malbec, Carmenere and Portuguais Bleu. The wine is unoaked, and is very aromatic – aromas of mint, violets and red cherry burst from the glass. It is medium-bodied, balanced, and dangerously smooth. Try this wine on its own, or with pork chops.
