Description

Biodynamic. The Oratoire vineyards are located on steep hills in two climats of Cairanne: Saint-Martin and Les Douyes. This is a blend of 60-plus-year-old vines from both terroirs: mostly from the yellow clay and limestone of Saint-Martin; with a little fruit from their limestone-rich Les Douyes vineyard. The yields can dip as low as 20 hl/ha depending on the vintage. It is a blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah, with a sprinkling of whole-bunch Carignan and Counoise. Following fermentation with indigenous yeast in concrete vats, the wine was matured for 12 months and bottled without fining or filtration. Only a touch of sulphur was used at bottling.

We’re in mini-Châteauneuf territory. There are hints of spiced plum jam plus a little game flavour from the Mourvèdre. The palate is rich, succulent, and packed with flavours of black fruit and wild berries laced with black olive and liquorice. A wine of the south! A weave of tannin brings a fine structure to balance the generosity. This is for those who like their Rhône with real horsepower. Decanting will only add to the pleasure.

Wines of Rhone Valley

The Rhone wine region is situation in the south of France in the Rhone Valley. The region is split into north and south with distinctively different winemaking styles. In the north, the main grape used is Syrah and is sometimes blended with white varietals. In the south however, reds are a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan and Cinsault. You may be familiar with this sort of blend; in Australia it is labelled GSM.

Wines are produced under various Appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) designations. The most prestigious of which is Chateauneuf-du-Pape. You may also have heard of other AOC names such as Gigondas, Hermitage, Lirac, St Joseph. Wines coming from these and other AOCs are all on the higher end of the market.

On the value end we have wines produced in Cotes-du-Rhone AOC. Cotes-du-Rhone often refers to wines made in the Rhone Valley that do not fall under any other AOC, often from the flatter areas around Southern Rhone. However, it also does include the fringes of well-respected northern appellations as well. In terms of volume, a majority of Rhone wine falls under the Cotes-du-Rhone AOC and it offers some of the best value in France and even some first-rate and age-worthy reds.

Full-bodied and flavourful white wine blends are also made in the region. These are typically a combination of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier.
