LETHBRIDGE 'QUE SYRAH SYRAH'
Why then the name Syrah? Syrah is what the French call Shiraz and this wine is made in a traditional Old World style, using 3000L oak vessel for fermentation and then maturation in traditional 1200L oval oak foudres. This allows for both a pure expression of the rich fruit and spicy aromatics of Australian Shiraz as well as the development of the savouriness and texture reminiscent of Syrah. A truly delicious wine.
“Fruit off the Malakoff vineyard in the Pyrenees, this is concentrated and intense with an astonishing dark-purple colour and fragrance - a very good wine. Full-bodied, supple, plentiful tannins, some sweet-sour acid drops and loads of spicy fruit.” 94 points, Jane Faulkner, James Halliday Wine Companion.
