Chateau Vieux Laroque 2018

A crowd favourite! The grapes for this wine come from Bordeaux’s largest appellation, known as the AOP (Appelation d'Origine Protégée) Bordeaux. Grapes are grown on a large variety of soils and in different little pockets of microclimates dotted around the region, allowing the winemakers to really shine when bringing the wine together. 2016 was an interesting vintage which saw both drought and heat in the region, however come harvest things everything settled down and the grapes were able to be picked without issue. This one’s a blend of mostly Merlot, backed up with both Cabs (Sauv and Franc) giving it a deep ruby colour and obvious notes of ripe red fruits – it’ll be a crowd favourite on any dinner table.

Joelle Thomson, Wine Writer "This ruby coloured red is smooth and spicy with flavours of fresh cedar, red berries and a light smoky note. It comes from France’s biggest fine wine region, Bordeaux, home to good value wines such as this one."
