Menage A Bunch Wine Details

Description: As the name implies, it's a blending of all our grapes with Syrah being the predominant player. As such, this wine is turning out to be rich and opulent. This is the wine that you will want to bring and uncork at a fine restaurant, or give as a special gift or just drink whenever you want. In other words, it's a marvelous wine.

Varietal Definition
Syrah is the eight hundred pound gorilla of Rhone grapes! In the vineyard and the winery, Syrah is typically an easy grape to work with - healthy, early ripening, resistant to mildew and rot; suitable for winemaking in a variety of styles. The wines from Syrah are tannic without being harsh. The wines will have a taste and smell of dark blue fruit like blackberries and blackcurrant, with a strong spicy side where one can find freshly ground pepper and other spices. Syrah is famous for its part in the French blends, such as Côtes du Rhone and Châteauneuf du Pape.
