Winemaking

› Upon arrival in the cellar, grapes are destemmed and crushed. Each grape variety is vinified separately.
› Part of the blend goes through cold maceration & short fermentation to extract fresh & fruity aromas, while fermentation is longer and slow on the other part, to enhance structure and body.
› Older barrels of 2 to 3 years are chosen over newer oak to soften the tannins and bring more elegance to the bouquet. Nearly 35% of the syrah is aged for 6 to 9 months in oak barrels.
› VEGAN WINE.

Tasting Notes

› A deep purple-red robe.
› Generous and full nose, with delicate hints of red berry fruits, spices and vanilla due to ageing of the syrah in oak barrels.
› Intense black-fruit added to persistent and smooth tannins for a very seductive and harmonious palate.


Enjoy on its own or with Mediterranean cuisine, mature cheese, grilled meat or Sunday roast.

Variety

Reviews

Delicious Magazine

  • "If you're having a meaty affair - where the bbq groans under the weight of lamb chops and steak, then head for a French bottle from the Rhone Valley....Syrah grape gives a smoky, savoury, blackcurrant character. Spot on with slightly charred, herby, peppery red meat.."
