Winery Tasting Notes
Very dark colour. Fairly syrupy appearance.
Aromas of wild berry fruits (raspberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants), spices, cinnamon and a touch of mint.
Very rich and fat on the palate with a long, silky finish. This is a wine of a rare complexity.
A perfect match for Mediterranean food, spicy dishes, sauced meats, game and charcuterie.
About 70% of the "Les Jamelles Syrah" undergoes a long maceration (about 3 weeks) period to extract colour, tannins and fatty components from the grapes. The remaining 30% undergoes carbonic maceration (fermentation of whole grapes) to obtain plenty of fruit. A small proportion (about 10%) is aged in oak barrels for greater complexity.
