* Featured in the December Holiday Sipper Pack *
Banyuls sits just north of Spain near France’s Mediterranean coast. The vines grow on terraced slopes soaking up the warm sun. Lightly fortified to 16.5%, made from old-vine Grenache with a bit of Carignan. Fruity with dark notes of red berries and plums, cocoa and dark baking spices. A killer pairing with rich desserts from chocolate, to toffee pudding, to the season’s fruit cake. Really good with blue cheese too. We don’t often include sweet wines in the packs, but December is the month for it, if ever there is one.
