"Offering lovely juicy notes of black cherry and plum with mixed spice, game and roasted nuts, the wine displays succulent fruit intensity together with fleshy texture and supple tannins. It’s friendly, flavoursome and very easy to enjoy" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jan 2020

This wine has a nice dark colour. It exhales delicious scents of blackberry and raspberry enhanced by hints of spices. It is rich, complex and long on the palate.

The grapes come from granitic soils with clay, and schistous soils. Syrah is a late variety (budding and ripening) with low fertility but good vigor. Its best yields are obtained at less than 40 hectoliters per hectare and it is difficult to obtain more in areas that are generally infertile with poor soils. This variety fares better in rocky, shallow, well-drained soils. Granite or schist soils mixed with clay, which are more acidic, suit it perfectly.

The vinification process for Syrah grapes in this wine includes a 6- to 10-day vatting period and a hot prefermentation maceration period. This Syrah is aged in vats for about 6 to 8 months.

Food Pairing: Its rich and complex aromas will perfectly match grilled lamb with herbs, pâté, cheese and chocolate desserts. Serve at 17°C.
