Country / Region: France
Vineyard: Cave de Tain
Varietal: Syrah
Vintage: 2015

Easy drinking bright, soft and fruity Syrah from Northern Rhone Valley France

Our newly imported 2015 vintage from Cave de Tain is coming off of what producers are exclaiming to be the best vintage in 50 years for reds. This is one of our favourites in the under $20 price point, from the Rhone Valley in France - the ancestral home of Syrah.  An unoaked version so more fruity and easy drinking rather than the bold spicy end of the spectrum, and at this price can easily slot into the 'spur of the moment' quaffing stack.

Tasting Note

Vin de Pays des Collines Rhodaniennes

100% Syrah from the hills surrounding Tain Hermitage in the Northern Rhone, produced by the important Co-Op winery Cave de Tain.

Completely un-oaked and made in a 'drink now' style.  Lots of bright red berries, black fruit, a touch of liquorice, savoury brown spice and brown sugar with good acid on the finish.  
 

About Cave de Tain

Cave de Tain is a large Co-Operative producer based in the town of Tain L’Hermitage – the wine centre of the Northern Rhone Region, and located at the foot of the infamous ‘Hermitage’ hill.  Cave de Tain combines the strength of more than 100 individual growers, with more than 1,000 hectares of vines across the Northern Rhone.  They are the largest producer of AOC quality Syrah in Europe and a Syrah specialist.  Growers are rewarded based on the quality of the grapes they produce, with higher tier wines selected from superior sites - the top wines produced from the thin stony soils and steep terraced vineyard sites of Hermitage.  They are proud to be the recipients of the 'Co-Op Winery of the Year' from the Revue de Vin de France in January 2015, and highly rated by Jancis Robinson and infamous wine journal 'The Wine Advocate'.
