Syrah is known for being easy to grow, vigorous and resistant to mildew. Its aromas evolve from raspberry, pepper and liquorice in its youth to more complex notes of black fruit, leather and spices over time. It is mainly grown in the Rhône Valley, particularly in the famous Côte-Rôtie and Hermitage regions, but is also found in other French regions such as Châteauneuf-du-Pape, as well as in Australia, where it is known as shiraz. 

Syrah goes well with roast or marinated meat dishes, game, duck and lamb. Younger vintages are perfect for grilled or spicy dishes, while older vintages go better with tender meats and more delicate dishes.

”I have been inspired to work with small, family-owned wineries because in my experience, they produce the best value wines that you can find. These wines are hand-crafted - they have a story about where they are from and how they are made - and it is these wines that I send out every month to our subscribers, wines with beautiful details that I enjoy sharing with people."
