It must be a while since we did Rhone blends?
I reckon we could widen the focus subtly to include all wines using a blend (i.e. discouraging varietal wines) of Rhone grapes e.g. Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvedre, Viognier, Marsanne, Roussane, etc. Plenty of Rhone rangers in Aus, US and of course France (but also taking in some of the South of France producers using those grapes).
