Cave de Tain Syrah Rhone VDP
Easy drinking bright, soft and fruity Syrah from Northern Rhone Valley France
The newly released 2018 vintage from Cave de Tain is a return to normal volumes after a troubled 2017. 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.
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, baked black cherry and black pepper - a touch of liquorice, savoury brown spices.
