Tandem, Syrah Du Maroc
Top 8% wine in the UK
Blend: 100% Syrah
From: Morocco, Casablanca
By: Graillot & Thalvin @ Dom des Ouleb Thaleb
This syrah comes from one of Morocco’s oldest wine producers, Ouled Thaleb, which dates back to 1923. It is a full-bodied but fresh wine, with sweet spice and tobacco on the nose, and the palate is dominated by dark fruits like blackberry and blueberry.
Grapes for the wine are grown on gravelly, well-drained vineyards a short way from Casablanca. The ocean breezes here help to temper the warm, sunny environment, and the grapes are able to retain their freshness. After harvest, the grapes are vinified in concrete tanks before being matured in French oak for 12 months, a third of which is new.
Vivino users rate it a top wine with a stunning 3.8!
