Syrah 

75cl * 13.5% ABV * Côtes Du Rhône, France 

100% syrah grapes sourced from the excellent Les Arènes vineyards, part of which is located on decomposing granite, which adds power and acidity to the wine.  The other part is planted on stony clay and limestone soil, which helps to create meaty, powerful wines with good tannin.

From the excellent 2016 vintage, and ready for enjoying now, this has dense, ripe fruits, with baked raspberry, morello cherry and blackcurrant jam notes, well integrated cedar oak and a hint of ground white pepper. The structure is perfectly balanced with smooth, ripe tannins. This can take some robust food matches, so pair with hearty red meat dishes, garlicy Toulouse sausages, grilled aubergine or strong cheddars.
