Style: Red Wine
Producer: Benoit Roseau
Benoît's 'Syrah de Rosette' pours a deep, opaque purple color. The grapes are foot-trodden and ferment in stainless steel or resin vessels; the end result is traditional in style and evocative of Northern Rhone wines of the past.
Expect a nose that is intense and complex, featuring aromas of blackberry, purple fruits, herbs and a salty sea-spray. On the palate, this Syrah is rich and full bodied with fine-grained tannins and a savory, salty mineral edge to balance the blueberry and blackberry fruit flavors. The finish is long and mineral driven and lifted by a moderate acidity.
