At a Glance

This wine is silky, spicy and ethereal. It’s easy-drinking with bright red fruits, inspired by the cool-climate Syrahs of Northern Rhone. Made from grapes grown on a beautiful sloping vineyard in a premium appellation called Les Aspres in the Roussillon region of southern France. Drink with plump, gamey duck breast and dark plum sauce.

The grapes are grown here
 
Syrah from Roussillon, 2013 vintage. Perfumed, violet, great clarity, really dry and delicate, with just enough tannin. Juicy and fragrant and really subtly done – delicate, featherweight tannins and clean, fine fruit. 16.5 points.

In Depth

The Jonquères d’Oriola family have been making wine for an incredible 28 generations, so who better to grow the grapes for our inaugural Syrah? The soil of the Roussillon vineyard where this Syrah was grown is rich in clay, providing good water retention during the hot summer months. A cool start to the growing season meant that yields were kept low, which helped build concentration in the grapes. Back in the winery, gentle handling and ageing in old oak created this soft, supple wine.
