What a glorious Syrah this 2021 vintage has produced! It is an intense purple red, with a superbly balanced nose of wild strawberries, blackberries, and laurel, followed by peppermint and fresh coconut. The tannins are supple, melting, and smooth, underpinning the fullness and length of the palate. As in previous years we find the characteristic notes of blackcurrant and blackberry with a finish on notes of cinnamon, lemon verbena and vanilla. Pure sunshine in a bottle, this Syrah nevertheless possesses a tangible freshness typical of northern terroirs. It is one of the best loved wines in our Villa Blanche range.
