Tasting Note :
Syrah and Viognier grapes grow side by side in our Manara vineyard in the upper Galilee, and are harvested together.
The 3% Viognier grapes is then integrated into the Syrah during fermentation.
Such blending of a small amount of white grapes into this red wine derives from an old method used in the Rhֳone Valley to refine the wine, enrich its flavors and add complexity to the aromas.
This blend was aged in new French oak barrels for nine months and then coarsely filtered before bottling to conserve its natural essence, raw expression, and Mediterranean elegance.
Serving Suggestion :
Ideally suited to drinking with casseroles and tagine style dishes, it pairs well with meat in rich sauces, pungent cheeses and even with bitter chocolate.
