AGENT PROVOCATEUR - GRENACHE FRONTIGNAC TOURIGA GEWÜRZTRAMINER 2022

An ‘agent provocateur’ provokes others into illegal acts! A fitting name for this intriguing rule breaker that defies all winemaking conventions. Not a red wine, nor a white, nor a rosé. Its appearance suggests a light red, yet it is jam packed with aromatic white fruits, along with lashings of plumpy raspberry Grenache. Chill it down for refreshment or drink at room temperature – there are no rules here.

Appearance: Primary colours are blended to make an array of many other colours. When we lay out the parts of Agent Provocateur the strong character of each base wine is like a primary colour – there’s something very special about the various shades of flavour that come to light when we blend these parts.

Bouquet & Palate: A cherry-berry bubblegum blast of fruit and spice. All bombast and strut, there is nothing covert about this provocateur. Rasberries, Killer Pythons, cinnamon and clove. Unmatched palate generosity – the perfume pinned down by fine texture. Finely poised acidity makes lips smack.

Food Pairing: Tea Smoked Duck with plum sauce, or Mixed mushroom 5-spice steamed buns

Winemaker: Hugh Hamilton
