    Domaine de Galuval is nestled between Cairanne and Rasteau in the hinterland of Provence in the Southern Rhône.  It has 49 hectares in various parcels covering some of the best terroir around the Mont Ventoux, along with some of the oldest vines in the region of local varietals such as Caladoc.  Low intervention and perfect growing conditions combined with careful parcel selection and judicious ageing result in thoroughly modern wines that remain true to the individual character of each vintage. Winemaker Emmanuel Couzi’s style is guided by the richness of the fruit and the diversity of each terroir.

    The emblem of the Domaine de Galuval, the Rooster spins around as the weathervane is battered by the wind. The Mistral and the benefit it brings are what help their vineyards to prosper, ventilating the vines, keeping the grapes healthy and chasing away the clouds to allow them to reach perfect maturity.

    This wine is born from a quartet of local grape varieties: Grenache blanc, Viognier, Roussanne and Clairette. They played on the identity and complementarity of the grape varieties to create a beautiful balance. Each expresses its varietal notes for a wine all in finesse, very aromatic with subtle floral notes.

    The colour is golden yellow with green reflections. The nose develops complex aromas on the white flower, honeysuckle and linden.

    The palate is elegant and airy, it opens with a beautiful round approach, a fruity palate and sustained freshness. An unexpected delicate signature for the region.

    Great with Asian soup (Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai) Asian style chicken. Asparagus potage (Soup), fried goat cheese with butter lettuce, green apple, almond, borage, sweet meyer lemon cream with cardamom, Mediterranean king prawns, broccoli risotto, calamari, cheese quiche or chicken tagine

    In February 1994, Jeremy visited his family in South Africa. His sister, Amanda was working as a wildlife film maker and had met Emma at Lloyd’s Camp. She knew that the camp was looking for a cook and had volunteered his services. He was interviewed by Emma, who recommended him for the job. During the seven inspirational years, working with Charles Back at Fairview,  Jeremy self-funded his post grad degree in wine business at Adelaide University. Emma pursued her photography and the family expanded. Now making wine of their own since 2005 they just haven’t had the time to look back! These guys are keen conservationists and work with organisations such as TUSK, and the Endangered Wildlife Trust with a percentage of the takings on the wines going to such causes.
    Roussanne, native to the warmer regions of France’s Rhone valley, is a relative newcomer and still very rare in South Africa. There are fewer than 10 South African producers and Painted Wolf are proud to be ranked among the top.
    Roussanne is grown by Willy Mostert on the south eastern side of the Paardeberg. The vines are planted on decomposed granite soils.
    The wine was fermented at Koopmanskloof in Stellenbosch in 500-litre French oak barrels. About 50% was in brand new, super tight grain barrels and the balance in neutral oak. After nine months in wood, the wine was bottled. Total production 2,750 bottles.
    A tight, elegant wine with waxy stone fruit and soft, spicy vanilla aromas. The wine has a lovely texture with a long, layered finish. Try with blood orange, eggplant, basmati rice and skinned chicken breasts with Moroccan style spices, also great with smoked fish pate with apricot relish, or salmon ravioli served with salsa verde, fish with fennel or vegetarian spring rolls Get to know when Painted Wolf and Guest Wines teamed up Vegetarian
