Old World Style
For those who love a dry, tart, and tangy red, we present to you the 2018 Syrah!
Playful notes of blackberries, black currant, plum, cherry, and lavender present themselves with a zing to complement its earthy and herbaceous aromas that gradually give way to a dry and softly tannic finish.
This Syrah’s style is an homage to its old-world ancestors that originated in Northern Rhone, France.
Old World Syrahs tend to have more acidity and herbal notes, compared to the New World style which entails more of a fruit-forward and jammy palate with an emphasis on spices.
With our Syrah being lighter in body, it makes a perfect pair for rosemary asiago and dried apricots, which you will find in our specially crafted Syrah Pairing Charcuterie Box.
We also found we wanted to pair this wine with some foods that typically have white wine as a complimint. For example, the White Cheddar Corn Puffs (or Pirates Booty) is just salty and light and fluffy enough to add some flavor while not overpowering Syrah’s delicate structure.
For an entree, we recommend a variety of chicken breast preparations including, rosemary chicken, braised chicken, and parmesan-crusted chicken.
Overall, we think you’ll enjoy this zingy number that strays from our typical full-bodied, fruit-forward style.
