Syrah is the grape behind France’s famous Côte Rôtie et Hermitage appellations. In climbing back up the Rhone river this grape has, not surprisingly, found a second home.

It was brought to the canton in 1926 and is currently all the rage, for good reason: numerous top critics, including the European Grand Jury, are saying that the Syrahs from Valais equal the best
international wines, including Syrahs from the northern Côtes du Rhône in France, Australia and California.

In Valais Syrah has a purple robe and is notable for its classy tannins. It has
wonderful notes of spices, black pepper and wild berries. Powerful, elegant–the best vintages have a good aging potential of five to 10 years.

Serve at 14°-16°C
