Ferraton Père & Fils (375ml), 2015, Samorëns Côtes du Rhône

Red, Old World, Grenache based blend from the Northern Rhone, France

A lightish red with ripe red fruits and soft tannins. Goes well with curries and grilled meats.

Why we recommend this wine
For an everyday, easy-drinking wine this is hard to beat.

The wine
This blend of Grenache (80%), Syrah (15%), Cinsault (5%) undergoes maceration for 3 weeks before temperature controlled vinification and then the wine is matured in oak vats before bottling.
The wine maker describes this wine as having a cherry red colour with very ripe red fruit on the nose and nicely structured palate with firm and meaty tannins and a taste of small ripe fruit and spices. We really like the depth from the Syrah and Cinsault.

The wine estate
Ferraton is a family owned winery with vineyards in the prime areas around Tain l'Hermitage in the Northern Rhone. Added to this is a small, high-quality negociant business which covers all the northern Rhône appellations and a few from the south as well. In 1998 they signed a joint venture with Chapoutier giving them access to Chapoutier biodynamic farming and winemaking expertise with positive results. They have used biodynamic methods for almost twenty years and are a certified producer.

Food and wine
Light and fruity but with some tannins means it pares well light dishes; so chicken and prawn curry, lamb chops, tuna and salmon.
