Parnasse Pays d’Oc Syrah 2014

Syrah from France - Other
Review Date : 02-Dec-2015
Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly packed with aromas of fresh dark red berry fruit entwined with subtle earthy and dried herbal elements, unfolding hints of spice and liquorice. The aromatics are soft in expression. Medium bodied, the palate features light, juicy flavours of savoury dark red berry fruits with herb and earthy notes. The mouthfeel is refreshing with lacy acidity and supple from light tannin extraction. The fruit flavours recede as the tannins grow in presence to carry the wine to a dry, fine-textured finish with light berry and herb flavours. This is an up-front, juicy, country-style Syrah with savoury red fruit and dry structure. Match with barbecued fare, pasta and casseroles over the next 2-3 years. 100% Syrah from Nimes, Beziers and the Aude Valley from vines 20 y.o., destemmed and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in seasoned oak and tank. 16.5/20 Dec 2015 RRP $20.00
