Ben says

★ Good Wine “Perfumed nose and packs of blueberry and plum fruit. Soft, fruit-driven and spicy on the palate. Oak nicely integrated. Simple wine but with everything done right. A pleasure to just drink.”
St Chinian 'Pour Les Amis'


50% Grenache, 40% Syrah, and 10% Mourvedre with 14.0% abv.

Grown in: Saint-Chinian AOC, Languedoc-Roussillon, FRANCE

Food Pairing

GSM and BBQ is a quick fire food and wine pairing answer. Full, ripe and spicy alongside sticky sweet meats just works. Nicely rounded GSM like this one works really well with mince and rice stuffed bell peppers, or rosemary-scented lamb chops. For a simple pairing, opt for a Margherita.
