Up first is the French Syrah from the Languedoc region.
Signature peppery bouquet, with raspberry and earthy notes;
this classic varietal from Southern France is complex and
harmonious with soft tannins. Flavours of blackberry and
black cherry are accented with spicy black pepper and oak,
hints of mint, herbs, mocha, and faint licorice on the finish.
The Languedoc region hugs the Mediterranean coastline
of France and has been planted with vineyards since the 5th
century BCE. Vineyards here are generally planted in the coastal
plains of the Mediterranean, known to be some of the hottest,
most arid regions of France. With an average of 300 days of
sunshine per year, low rainfall, and temperatures regularly
above 30C, the weather provides excellent growing conditions.
Serve thick homemade burgers with aged cheddar, slow cooked
lamb, or other grilled or roasted red meats. Try with hearty
casseroles and pepper steaks. Hard, matured cheeses and 70%
dark chocolate also pair well.
