BODEGAS ARRAYAN SYRAH

BODEGAS ARRAYAN SYRAH Image

a.k.a. Shiraz (Australia) Not to be confused with Petite Sirah, which is a synonym for Durif.
Syrah is responsible for some of the darkest full-bodied red wines in the world. It has dark fruit flavors from sweet blueberry to savory black olive. When you taste Syrah you’ll be greeted with a punch of flavor that tapers off and then has a spicy peppery note in the aftertaste. Because of its front-loaded style, Syrah is often blended with grapes that add more mid-palate, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, to help make the wine taste more complete. Traditionally in France, Syrah is blended with light-bodied Grenache and even richer Mourvedre to create the classic Côtes du Rhône blend.
Powerful nose, ripe blackberries, creamy chocolate, prunes, fine balsamic herbs, violets and liquorice notes. Powerful, fleshy palate, ripe fruit with a slight liqueur- like quality, slightly alcoholic, good acidity, liquorice, spicy plum preserve and some fleshy petals to finish.
