About the wine

A delightfully balanced French Syrah with great acidity and body. We detected cherries, chocolate and black pepper on tasting, with some mineral undertones. The wine has some vanilla and coffee flavours as well because it is oaked for six months in new French oak. If you like an oakey hit upfront with lots of fruit, then this is the wine for you.
