Fredéric Garrabou

Fred was born in the small village of Limoux, situated amongst the Languedoc vineyards. His father and both his grandfathers were vine growers, and he grew up immersed in the vineyards, assisting his father from a young age. The cultivation of vines has always captivated him, as he believes that the finest wines are crafted in the vineyard.  

Bright ruby red. On the nose notes of blackberry, violet and cassis. On the palate the fruit opens up with a hint of liquorice. Extremely silky tannins and subtle oaking that balances the dense fruit characteristics.
Drink with roast Lamb or a Rabbit cacciatore
This is a modern, fruit-driven and rich Shiraz, showing the jammy and spicy qualities of ripe Syrah. The vines grow in small parcels throughout the Languedoc, with a variety of altitudes, soils and density of plantings. The grapes are assessed each day leading upto the harvest to ensure full ripeness, monitored for both sugar and tannins but also acidity and phenolics

Victoria Moore, The Telegraph, March 2024, 'The 25 best wines for Easter lamb, chocolate and bank holiday bubbles': "This one is a belter – all juicy black berries with a lick of liquorice. And it’s brilliant value, too. Hello roast lamb." Graham Holter, Wine Merchant Magazine, November 2023: 'It's only natural these days to raise a quizzical eyebrow at wines that arrive with an RRP below £10, and normally it's a question of working out what's wrong, rather than right. But this is a sumptuous, juicy Languedoc red with enough depth and spicy detais to justify another few quid on the price ticket'.
