2019 Syrah Cuvée Classique

2019 Syrah Cuvée Classique

*** Due to less than a third of the normal production numbers, this vintage of Syrah Classique is reserved exclusively to Wine Club Members.***

While it combines elements of both the old and new world, our Syrah Cuvee Classique leans more toward what you would expect from France’s Rhone Valley – hence the name. While its sibling Cuvée Violette showcases the floral, graceful and perfumed side of Syrah, Cuvée Classique shows the dark, savoury, spicy and powerful side of this noble grape variety. The wine is nuanced and elegant, yet structured in its youth. In 2019, there is an ethereal and lifted dimension to this wine. white peppercorn, rusted iron, red and darker bramble fruit, a touch of black olives and aromatic herbs make up the aromatic and flavour profiles of this wine. There is a great balance between the components already albeit the wine is on the young side. Syrah Cuvee Classiquec can be enjoyed in youth or tucked away for the mid or even long term.

  • Meat-Based
    Rosemary and thyme-braised lamb shoulder with roasted fingerling potatoes or anise-crusted vision loin with garlic mash are a couple of our favourites to pair this wine with.

    Plant-Based
    Cauliflower steak with romesco sauce or a lentil shepherd’s pie will go a long way with this wine.
