A red wine with a white lift. Not always the same grapes, but the vibe is strong each time. This year the Agent Provocateur is 81% Grenache, 13% Frontignac and 6% Shiraz. Fragrant ripe raspberry and liquorice, with hints of candied vanilla and spice. Bright acidity and polished tannins, succulent and fresh. Something different from a stalwart Vale producer.
