Red Wine /// S.G.V // Rhone Valley / France
This is why we sell wine. Industry barnacle Killian Horan has been pushing savage juice on Dublin punters for years, first through Ely, then with distributors Wine Mason and La Mission before helping Mick O'Connell and Shane Murphy (Mick & Keef) with their growing empire of Neighbourhood Wine stores. During this time he fitted in 4 vintages at Les Deux Cols, the Rhone project helmed by Simon Tyrell, Charles Derain & now Gerard Maguire of destination store 64Wine. Now Killian has made his first cuvee.

La Charlatan was initially dreamed up as a knock off Cote Rotie, utilising Syrah and Viognier, and the label even suggests so, but as Killian says, things change! In the end, along with Syrah and Viognier from Pascal Chalon, he took a chunk of the gorgeous Grenache that hew helped grow with Les Deux Cols and added it - Syrah-Grenache-Viognier is a new one on me.

The wine is awesome, popping and intense, it has buzzy energy and prickly acidity, crunchy bright fruit but some nice rich Autumnal vibes too - he has learnt a lot from Les Trois Cols. Organic fruit, Killian opened the full low intervention bag of tricks: half of it was whole bunch with semi-carbonic maceration and then into stainless steel for 12 months to preserve varietal character. Super cool label art and sealed with yellow wax for extra classiness.

This is a product of the Dublin wine industry, a testament to the markets growing sophistication and also to the people that helped Killian on his journey from Ely in the early days to his wine making mentors in the Rhone and his current colleagues in Neighbourhood. We are delighted to sell it. STSWine
