Why do we love this wine?

This has fast become ‘Mother’s Little Helper’, as mum gleefully calls it. Exceedingly vibrant in colour and flavour, there’s little wonder why. Equally vibrant is the tasting note from the winery: “...raspberries, blood orange peel and garrigue with an underlying crushed rock minerality. Intense flavours of sweet cherry and raspberries are interlocked with red currants and pink peppercorn spice…” I certainly don’t dispute the description’s exuberant accuracy, but it did make me look up “garrigue”. Here’s the definition from Wine Spectator:

“Garrigue refers to the low-growing vegetation on the limestone hills of the Mediterranean coast, not the limestone itself. There are a bunch of bushy, fragrant plants that grow wild there, such as juniper, thyme, rosemary and lavender, and garrigue refers to the sum of them. Think herbes de Provence, or a mix of fresh minty-herbal notes with more pungent, floral fragrances.”

Kinda specific, then. Garrigue indeed.
