Vidmar Syrah

Vidmar Syrah Wine Details
Price: $32.00 per bottle

Description: Our 2004 presents an intoxicating nose of herbs (thyme with a hint of basil) and spice mixed with meaty aromas interlaced with ripe red fruit. Soft and sweet tannins combined with a well balanced acidity make this wine a wonderfully pure expression of Syrah’s potential for finesse and elegance.

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.
