"A juicy, ripe Syrah-Carignan-Grenache-Mourvèdre blend from the youngest vines on one of the domaine’s finest parcels. Silky palate with inky red- and black-berry fruit, garrigue herbs and oak spice, enlivened by fresh acidity." Tina Gellie

 

Tasting Notes:

Deep red color with purplish reflections, l'estibals expresses aromas of garrigue, morello cherry and red fruit. Attack is full and smooth on the palate with very present tannins accompanied by a discreet oak. 


About L'Ostal Estibals

It takes its name from one of the domaine's finest parcels... ''Estibals''. Domaine de L'Ostal Estibals is made from a blend of the youngest vines that do not meet criteria for the Grand Vin of Domaine de L'Ostal. The blend is made up of 42% Syrah, 36% Carignan, 12% Grenache, and 10% Mourv̬dre.

This balance of grape varieties provides a perfect expression of the Minervois appellation. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.
