The origin of the grape is uncertain but it could come from either Greece or Cyprus. Syrah is planted around the world, for instance, it is known as “Shiraz” in South Africa. Closer to home, the Syrah is emblematic of the Northern Rhône region. Recently planted in Switzerland, it can be found in the Valais and Geneva.
The Geneva vineyards tend to emphsise the fruity aspect of Syrah wines, so they are a bit less rounded than the Cotes du Rhone wines. Our Syrah is aged in oak barrels for 10 to 12 months to develop its spicy aromas of toasted oak.
Bouquet: Typical peppery notes of Syrah are present but it is the fruit that dominates.
Palate: Albeit with a pronounced tannic note, this Syrah remains light and fresh.
Food and wine pairing:
Spiced chicken, tapas, strong cheeses, and grilled lamb.
