An earthy, slightly funky, but thoroughly enjoyable biodynamic blend of 60% old-vine Carignan with the balance Syrah and Grenache. The grapes are hand-harvested, de-stemmed and bottled without fining or filtration. If you’re wondering about the name and image on the label, those are the two donkeys that polw the soil so no tractors are used. The Fontanilles is medium-bodied with has expressive ripe plum and cherry flavors deepened by notes of chocolate and lifted by a touch of herbacious spice. Serve with braised Short Ribs or soft, mildy stinky cheese like Pont l’Eveque!
