Why do we love this wine?

I’m willing to bet you’re familiar with the shiraz grape, but what about French syrah? This is more than the same thing with a Gallic accent.

Some things will be familiar (particularly when you look at cooler climate Aussies, like Mornington syrah) but as with much of the ‘old world’, there’s definitely some unknowable magic in here too.  

Expect to find expansive dark blueberries and tart raspberries, intertwined with liquorice, black olives and cracked pepper. It’s powerful and tightly coiled, like 400 years of winemaking history carefully eased into bottle. 

The region of Saint-Joseph has been producing Syrah since the 1600s, when it was named by the Jesuits of Tournon (not an indie band you’ve never heard of). Enjoyed young, it’s hotheaded, tannic, and even a little arrogant. It’s a damn impressive wine to grapple with. But let it age and it’ll start to warm to you. Open a bottle every 12 months and see what happens. It’ll tell you a different story every year. You can be sure it’s got a few to tell.
