This Glou Glou is certainly a food wine; in fact, it begs for food. It has enough acid to stand up to your favorite tomato sauce, as well as intense berry notes that perfectly complement the char of a burger or a well-cooked pizza crust. On the nose it is a sea of hibiscus and raspberry with undertones of roasted coffee and wet rock. On the palate it is intense and fleshy with flavors of black plum and pomegranate and a long textural finish. Serve this slightly chilled and you will be the hero of your next backyard barbecue.
