6x Syrah (£79)
We begin our wonderful selection of Syrah with a couple of blends from France, a very fine Crozes-Hermitage from Rhône, and a Minervois Lo Paire from Languedoc-Roussillon. The Alentejano is a well balanced blend from Portugal. We then explore two mono varietal Syrah: one from Languedoc and the other, stronger one, from Sicily. These red wines exude the robust, acidic, and herbaceous qualities of an old-world style Syrah and are best enjoyed with bold foods heavily seasoned with Provençal herbs and semi-soft cheeses. For lovers of more fruit and spice we feature Lionheart from Barossa, an Australian unfiltered Shiraz, aged 18 months in oak. Enjoy these fruit-forward red wines with charcuterie, aged semi-soft cheeses, roasted or grilled red meats, tagine, and dark chocolate.
