Situated just north of the border from Spain, the town around Argèles-sur-Mer feels like a world apart - you are in France, but definitely in Catalonia (Catalan is taught at French schools there). Winemaker Andy Scott used to import wines from the region to his native Scotland but fell in love with the terroir, learned winemaking in New Zealand, and emigrated to the Roussillon to make wine in the foothills of the Pyrénées.

This 100% Grenache (called Grenache Noir to distinguish it from the Grenache Blanc which is also grown in the region) is destemmed, and vinified and aged 100% in tank for just pure black fruit aromas and easy drinking. It still has the tannins of a Grenache, so it’s substantial enough for lamb, light enough for outdoor sipping. A perfect Barbecue wine!
