A beautiful example of silky Syrah (the wine is bottled after seven months and is not oak-aged). On the nose there’s a touch of violets and aromas of raspberries, wild strawberries and a little garrigue. These follow nicely on to the palate which is refined and balanced giving a nice fresh feel to it. There’s just a hint of gentle tannins, but overall it has a very welcoming silky, round character.
