Carignan lends this elegant wine freshness and a rich, garnet color. Syrah imparts lovely, fine tannins on the palate. Complex aromas entice with spice, violets, dried plums and dark chocolate. The generous mouthfeel enhances the wonderful lingering fruit, spice and cocoa flavours. The domaine, Terre Des 2 Sources, is the realization of a dream shared by two couples — to find the best land and wine-growing environment and to craft exceptional wines.

An excellent choice to savor with earthy, roasted vegetables and game meats, or add flair to a meal of spicy meatballs or grilled steak.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The vineyards are on sloping lands at the base of the rugged Cevennes mountains. Cool winds sweep down from the mountains during the summer and slow the maturation of the grapes. The longer grapes hang on the vine the more this increases flavor and complexity. The soil is calcareous (chalky), stony clay and well-suited to the Carignan and Syrah vines.
Production Notes
Selections of both hand and machine-harvested grapes undergo fermentation in small, open vats. Hand-plunging of the cap occurs while the yeast is active. The wine is then aged in oak barrels for 12-months before blending and bottling.
Winemaker Notes
Terre des 2 Sources began with two couples who shared a dream — to find the best land and wine-growing environment and to craft exceptional wines. The foursome realized their dream with an estate on high elevation just south of the Cevennes mountains with a rich diversity of soils, slopes, aquatic features and climate. Kirsten Creasy is the winemaker, and her husband Glen manages the vineyards. Kirsten has a long and successful career making wines in different places throughout the world. She is native to New Zealand and has made wines there as well as in Australia and France. She is part of the Languedoc renaissance making her own wine in this special terroir.
Food Pairing Notes
An excellent choice to savor with earthy, roasted vegetables and game meats, or add flair to a meal of spicy meatballs or grilled steak.
