This wine is certified organic and bursting with flavor. Juicy, and yet still dry on the finish, this is everything you want in an uncomplicated, delicious, and fully natural wine. The Syrah creates the structure here – round and firm so you know this isn’t just some syrupy wine imposter. The Grenache adds some of the brightness and fruit notes, with a touch of zippy freshness that is typically called ’minerality’.
This wine is so juicy that it will pair nicely with sweet or spicy. Grilled Merguez sausages, smokey bacon, or chanterelle mushrooms in cream. It will cool down spice, temper smokey, or match sweet. Also delicious with BBQed anything, ground beef tacos, and makes a killer wine reduction for any recipe that calls for it.
