A blend of Rhone varieties Cinsault and Syrah plus Cabernet Sauvignon has rich characters of blackcurrants, redcurrants, cherries and raspberries. Delicious with roasts, grills, game, spicy Mediterranean dishes, casseroles and mature cheeses. Enjoy straight from the bottle (no need to decant) and serve at 18°C.
Chateau Musar Red wines are a varying blend of old vine, low yielding Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan, approximately one third of each. Fermentation is in concrete, then the wine spends a year in the vat (each variety is vatted separately), then a year or so in French Never oak. It is blended in the 3rd year, put back into vat and bottled at the end of the 3rd year and cellared for up to 6 or 7 years before release. There is no fining, minimum filtration and sulphites are kept very low. Chateau Musar recommends decanting the Red wines 30 minutes to 2 hours prior to serving.
