Syrah 2021 Les Vignes d’a Côté Cuilleron
Region: Rhône Valley, France
This pure Syrah features a beautiful dep purple color with an expressive nose of brambly fruits, spice, and violets. The palate practically bursts with fruits des bois and an excellent granitic, mineral finish. 100% Syrah from vines planted on a mix of granite and alluvial soils. The grapes are handpicked and then sorted, crushed and partially de-stemmed in the cellar. Fermented in open top, temperature-controlled vats for about 3 weeks, with regular cap-punching and pumping-over.
