Pasquiers Shiraz Pays d'Oc 2016
Succulent, juicy fruits : blackberry, plum and cherry with spice
Tasting Notes: A deep purple colour. Enticing aromas of juicy cherry, plum and blackberry. The palate is succulent and spicy with mouthfuls of lush, ripe berry fruit flavours with a touch of coffee and spice.
Based in the south-west of the Languedoc in the Aude region the 40 year old vines thrive on silty /sandy soil. The Syrah grapes are de-stemmed and macerated in tank. After a short maceration period the Viognier grapes are then added to the cap during alcoholic fermentation.
Food Match : Perfect to drink on its own but ideally matched with herby sausages, salami or pork based dishes
Grape : Shiraz (Syrah)
Producer : Boutinot
Country : Languedoc, France
