2018 "Les Hauts de Janeil" Syrah Grenache

£11.50

IGP Oc Les Hauts de Janeil Rouge, François Lurton 

France 

14% ABV  

Tasting Note: Rounded, elegant southern French red, a mouthful of strawberry, raspberry and black fruit, with a fresh blast of liquorice on the nose.  

Food Matching: Chicken with black olives, chicken brochette with herbs, beef tajine with vegetables. 

Vineyard: We make the wines from grapes harvested from slopes in the region around our Mas Janeil estate in the South of France. Manual harvest 

Vinification: Manual harvest. Traditional vinification with lots of extraction by means of rack and return during the aqueous phase (that is, before the level of alcohol becomes too high). The wine is drained off quite early to preserve the fruitiness and ensure plenty of suppleness in the mouth at the end of the alcoholic fermentation process. A small part of our blend is put into barrels during 5-6 months.
