First Crush Rosé of Syrah

First Crush Rosé of Syrah Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: This sophisticated rosé has more of an off-dry taste with just a hint of berry-like sweetness. A long fermentation process resulted in an enhanced fruit profile as well as a more complex wine that is not only a wonderful aperitif, but also a delicious complement to a wide variety of foods.

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.
