Villa Blanche Pays d’Oc Syrah 2016

Syrah from France - Other
Review Date : 25-May-2018
Full, dark, deep, near-saturated black-hued red with purple tints on the rim. The nose is elegantlt proportioned with well-packed and concentrated aromas showing an array of ripe black fruits with blackberries, hints of boysenberries, along with black pepper and plus, alongside a diverse herbal expression. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a rich and densely packed heart with juicy flavours of ripe dark raspberries, blackberries and black plums, melded with black pepper, herbs and florals. The mouthfeel is bright and vibrant, and the sweet, rich fruit is supported by fine-grained tannin grip with integrated acidity. A little jamminess emerges and the wine carries to a soft, light, lingering finish. This is a rich, plush and juicy, black-fruited Syrah with pepper, herbs and notes of jam on a fine, grainy palate. Match with roasted game meats over the next 5+ years. 100% Syrah 50% crushed and fully destemmed, and fermented to 13.5% alc., 50% of the wine aged 6 months in oak barrels. 17.5/20 May 2018 RRP $19.99
