Description

After spending a number of years training under Jeremy Hyland, possibly the best regarded viticulturist in NZ, at Kim Crawford wines and later at Astrolabe, Irishwoman Isla Gordon and her Australian winemaker husband Paul decided it was time to set out on their own and chose the Languedoc as the place best suited to the style of wine they both wanted to produce. Today, working with some unique terroirs and old vineyards treated organically and by hand, the Gordons produce some stunning Old World wines with a modern Ozzie twang. The aromas here are dominated by black cherries and plums, with the Carignan adding a subtle savoury character to the long finish.

Domaine La Sarabande
Domaine La Sarabande
Languedoc, France Domaine La Sarabande

Domaine La Sarabande was established by Irishwoman, Isla Gordon, and her Australian husband Paul, in France's Faugères in 2009.  They have rejuvenated several vineyards over the last years, amazed to see how the vines and the earth react when they are treated organically and by hand. Their desire is to increase their land holdings so that they can breathe life back into the old vines of the Languedoc-Rousillon.
