Touchy-Feely is about sensations. Touchy-Feely is graceful and dances with joy. Itís a wine lighter than air; it elevates. At the same time, itís a wine that has an extraordinary length both in palate and in the nose. As all good memories, Touchy-Feely endures. Touchy-Feely is entirely Rhone. Its Grenache side gives it femininity, elegance. Its minor RhÙne brother adds a tad of weight, just enough to keep it grounded, of body & structure.
Touchy-Feely is a different RhÙne, our take of dancing in summer. Its colors are almost claret. Itís a wine that works at an angle, in a different realm, a different dimension. Itís a wine which requires choices. It does not allow indifference. It is non-commercial and follows no beaten path. It is what some vineyards achieve when they dare to be themselves.
241 cases produced. 80% Grenache, 20% Syrah.
94 Points – Purely Domestic Wine Report, March 2017
“…Touchy-Feely gives a medium garnet-purple color and fragrant rose hip tea, potpourri and dried lavender notes over a core of kirsch, red currant jelly, Chinese five spice and anise. Medium to full-bodied and packed with expressive berry preserves and spicy layers, it has a lovely velvety frame and bags of freshness lifting the long finish. Yum! Drink 2017-2028.” – 93+ Points; Wine Advocate, September 2017
