The Story

Tinata is an outstanding blend of Syrah and Grenache from a single block on the Monteverro Estate. The sloped hillside vineyard is nestled next to the Mediterranean forest and is home to a century old Oak tree.

This Côtes du Rhône blend pays hommage to owner Georg Weber’s mother, Tina.  Red fruit aromas, such as cherry, raspberry, and cranberry, harmoniously mingle with subtle hints of florals, herbs, and spices, such as ginger, cinnamon, and coriander, and geranium, lavender, and rose. The entrance is fresh, but finishes sweet with nuances of grenadine and a touch of cassis. Fermented in a combination of stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels, Monteverro Tinata is aged in 40% new French oak barrels and 60% egg-shaped concrete tanks for 16 months.

Vintage 2009

The very rainy winter gave the coming season the crucial water to fill the hydric stock of the soil. The budding was quite early (March 27th for Grenache and April 1st for Syrah) and the moderate weather continued until the end of May, which resulted in perfect flowering. In June, we had two violent storms, but we were fortunate enough to have no damage in the vineyards.

The difficult weather was followed by a long, dry period until harvest began on September 2nd with the Syrah, which had perfect balance and color. The weather turned stormy from September 14th until the 22nd, so we paused with harvest until the heat and sun returned the first week of October when the Grenache reached a concentrated balance.

Written Notes

Deep ruby with hints of mashed strawberry on the rim, the wine reveals a varietal specific nose with an explosion of red fruits like red currant and raspberry with hints of spices like sage and clover balanced with blueberries, clay and violet. On the palate, the wine shows a velvety entrance with a bright freshness and fruit like red currants, fresh prunes and black cherries, lingering on dense, velvety tannins. A "feminin" vintage with beautiful fragrances.
