L'Aventure Estate Syrah

L'Aventure Estate Syrah Wine Details
Price: $60.00 per bottle

Description: Ruby and garnett hues play accross the glass, suggesting the complex play of violets, viande, and woodsy aromas. Rich, concentrated, tight blueberry/ blackberry flavors go on and on, ending in a peppery bang! This estate produced Syrah is elegant, as has become a characteristic of the vintage, as the wines continue maturation. You may eat this wine by itself!

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.
