Cave de Tain Hermitage Nobles Rives

AOC Hermitage - The hallmark wine of the region, demonstrating Syrah’s finesse, complexity, and longevity.  

Produced from 100% Syrah, hand-picked at peak maturity. Traditional maceration at 28C in concrete tanks for soft colour and tannin extraction, fermented at 30C for several days, then aged in oak for 18 months- 10% in large cuves, the rest in Burgundy barrels.

A complex nose of violets, bacon fat, marzipan, charred cedar, and fresh raspberries. Full and chewy tannins on the front, melding black olives, black cherries, old wood, and black pepper.
