La Frenz 2015 Syrah
The 2015 Syrah is a deeply hued and full-bodied wine that was produced in a northern Rhone style and reflects the excellent harvest that fall. The addition of a small percentage of Viognier during fermentation is represented both in the vibrant colour and on the mid-palate with floral and fruit characteristics of violets, ripe blueberries and dark purple fruits. Only French oak was used (15% new) for a 20 month maturation and is noted in the structure and a creamy cashew-like characteristic. This generous, broad mouthfeel leads to a persistent finish that highlights the earthy and savoury characteristic of a well-ripened Syrah, bringing to mind rosemary, white pepper and hints of charcuterie and soy. The classic pairing of roast or grilled lamb would make for a delicious evening with friends!
