Case of 6 Bottles
the Pope’s New Crib is an English translation of a well-known wine-growing region whose name shall not be mentioned.
In 1309 the Pope moved the seat of the Roman Catholic church from Rome to Avignon, from where the next 7 Popes ruled before returning to Rome in 1378. Of the many varieties planted in the region; Grenache noir is one of the best known. This wine is one of our expressions of that variety.
Light to medium-bodied, fruit-forward wine. Can be enjoyed slightly chilled for those hotter than average South African summer days.
Gregory XI : Returned to Rome in part due to the incessant please and threats from Catherine of Siena.
Vibrant youthful colour, with notes of wild raspberries and red currants. Juicy mid palate with a refreshing and grippy finish.
