Wine

Lycaon Grenache, Painted Wolf, 75cl

£16.80

This wine’s name, Lycaon comes from the scientific name for an African wild dog, Lycaon Pictus, and is derived from the Greek word Lycos for a wolf. This is an apt association for our Grenache, which is hand-made from organically certified grapes using traditional techniques. We have a wine that combines “sauvage”, elegance and energy in a spicy brooding finish.  The label illustration is derived from a page in an 18th century book on hunting in Southern Africa, which has been a major contributor to the demise of African wild dogs. They are now our rarest big mammal and are steadily edging towards extinction.

A lovely rich mélange of sweet and crunchy red berry fruit, subtle pepper spice flavours, and aromas harmonized with sweet oak. This is an elegant wine with a gorgeous silky palate with a spicy finish.

This wine should be served slightly chilled with French country bistro cuisine such as warm sausage and potato salad, chicken braised with fennel, saffron and green olives or lamb chops with ratatouille and tapenade.
