Syrah 229

DEVI005
A charming southern French wine from our old friend, the talented Xavier Roger, whose name derives from the grape growth cycle. Exactly 229 days between the bud break in the Spring and the leaf fall in the Autumn. With hot, sunny and dry summers, the area's climatic conditions are perfect for letting the Syrah grape reach its optimum ripeness, while maintaining its natural elegance and balance.

Tasting Notes

A great wine, brimming with black fruit aromas, this is bold and full-bodied with a dense, ripe palate, hints of blueberry and an underlay of black olive. The finish is unctuous, juicy and lingers and the tannins are silky soft.
