Style - Spicy
Tasting - Ahhh, cute, a Teddy Bear. But this one packs a hefty punch of gritty northern Rhone funkaloidial flavour. Yes, funkaloidial is a word. Sweet black cherry, grilled meat and crushed pepper a-go-go here. So instant and so much fun.
Isolation Pairing: Get a broom, a pair of socks and re-enact Rhona Martin and her team's heroics in winning the Gold medal in Winter Olympics in 2002. Glory days.
FYI: This is the 'entry' point wine from new northern Rhone superstar Matthieu Barret. He's working everything traditionally to extract the classic granite soil meat and pepper flavours of Syrah in these parts.
