Shrinking Violet Old Vine Syrah
This product is currently sold out.
This is Syrah from very old vines grown in l'Hérault. The wine is fermented in small stailess steel tanks then transfered to first and second use oak barrels for 6 months, giving the nose an attractive lift of fresh vanilla pod. This is a robust and powerful yet finely balanced wine. Very dark purple in the glass, it has profound aromatics of ripe blackberries with mineral and spice notes and appealing sweet oak. Full-bodied, finely integrated tannins with a long, fresh, juicy finish. It's a great wine for roast meats, especially beef.
