Grand Provence is the home of Angels Tears wines, a range of heavenly wines that are as unique as the legend of the angels themselves. Only the best grapes are selected from the estate's vineyards and picked by hand for processing at the acclaimed cellar. After the fermentation process each cultivar goes through a selection process and only the most fitting wines are chosen for the final blends, ensuring consistency in the fruity character of this delightful and easy drinking wine.

Each year the winemaker receives this bounty from nature and crafts a new vintage that continues to capture the true essence of Angels Tears in every bottle.

Style:

This is a smooth, medium bodied red wine with appealing ripe plums, black berry and licorice with notes of coffee and velvety chocolate flavours on the nose and carries through on the pallet, supported by a well-balanced oak and tannin structure. 

Vinification:

The grapes are hand harvested and brought to the cellar where they are gently destemmed and fermented at 28⁰C, after fermentation the wine is pressed and a portion of it is moved to high toast French oak and matured in oak for 6 months.

Ideally Served with:

A very versatile red wine perfect with any red meats or barbeque dishes
