Parnasse Pays d’Oc Syrah 2015

Syrah from France - Other
Review Date : 13-Sep-2016
Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with lighter purple hues on the rim. The nose is soft and light with gentle concentration of uncomplicated aromas of black-berried fruits entwined with black pepper and fresh herbs. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is fresh and lively, with up-front flavours of blackberries, black pepper and fresh, dark herbs. The mouthfeel is bright and lively with brisk, underlying acidity and a light, grainy, tannin grip and structure lending a balancing dryness to the fruit. The flavours are carried by the structure with plenty of energy, leading to a crisp, refreshing finish of black fruits and herbs. This is a fresh and lively black-fruited Syrah with a herbal layer, grainy tannins and brisk acidity. Serve with antipasto and barbecued red meats over the next 2-3 years. 100% Syrah from Nimes, Beziers and Aude Valley, from vines 20 y.o., fully destemmed and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in seasoned oak barrels and in stainless-steel tanks. Winemaker: Francois Estier. 16.5-/20 Sep 2016 RRP $20.00
