Enchant Trinity 2018
Enchant TRINITY is a deeply delicious wine blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre in the style of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, an appellation in the southern Rhône wine region which produces blended wines with rich fruit flavors, intense floral aromas together with hints of herbs and spices.
A good Châteauneuf-du-Pape is first and foremost a wine-lover's wine for which it has become famous; first in France, then in Australia where it is called a GSM and finally in the USA courtesy of wine critic Robert Parker through his praise for these wines.

The 2018 season was seamless with heavenly hangtime and phenomenal phenolic development. February saw abundant rains, followed by lots of filtered light in spring and early summer. Both bud break and flowering occurred a bit late, but under ideal weather conditions, creating plentiful and even fruit set.
Summer brought generous sun during the day and cooler marine influences, virtually uninterrupted by major heat spikes. The relatively mild summer followed by extended fall sunshine and moderate heat created near-ideal conditions as the fruit developed flavor complexity, approaching maturity with gradual increases in sugar levels, reaching optimal balance of brix and pH levels at harvest.
French Oak for 22 months, approximately 40% new, 40% one use and the balance neutral.
