Producer Profile

With their Tricolores fluttering, this anthem stirs the soul like no other. We’ve tried to capture a little of that French spirit in every bottle of Tricolore.

No oak treatment.

Tasting Note

The nose on this wine is full of dark fruits such as blackberries and blueberries which also show on the palate. This is balanced by soft tannins, resulting in a very easy drinking wine with plenty of freshness.

Food Matching

White or red meat, stews and some spicy foods.
