Composed of 38% Grenache, 36% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, 9% Carignan and 7% Pinotage, the 2020 Elpidios comes from 12 different vineyards and was made from 50% whole-cluster fruit. On the nose, the wine offers soft herbal hints of mint and menthol with a delightful undertone of wild brush before swaying with a red-fruited nature and delicate dusty essence. Medium-bodied and with 13.5% alcohol, the wine is juicy and mineral on the palate and offers delightful herbal essences across the structured mid-palate. The wine glides to a delightfully minty finish that will remain food-friendly for over a decade. Give it at least one more year in the bottle, and decant for at least 30 minutes before enjoying.

The 2020 Elpidios comes from 12 vineyards and is a Grenache-led blend with 50% whole bunch and a lighter extraction than the straight Grenache. Aromas of red cherries, crushed strawberry and rose petals on the nose with darker fruit mixed with Earl Grey notes emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, quite sappy and nicely balanced with gentle grip on the white pepper-tinged finish. Give this two or three years in bottle.
