Domaine La Tasque Syrah, 2016 IGP Aude
A full bodied, exceptionally deep coloured wine with aromas of blackcurrants, blueberries and bayleaf. Dense, silky, dark fruit flavours are balanced by grainy tannins and a hint of dark chocolate and wild herbs. Drinking well now until 2025. Enjoy with roast lamb with rosemary, grilled aubergine, hard cheese such as Cheddar or Comté.
Ideally, decant 2 hours before drinking or swirl in a large glass to let the flavours unfurl.
100% Syrah from 21 year old vines
The grapes were harvested by hand in mid September. They were destemmed and crushed before a long, gentle fermentation. 30% was aged in 3 year old oak barrels before bottling in March 2018.
