NOSTOS SYRAH

 

Red Dry Table Wine

Variety: Syrah

Clear, almost opaque dark purple color with nearly static legs.
Intense, dense aromas of black fruit, tobacco, black pepper, ink and coffee. Simultaneously very complex and young in character.

Mouth full of varietal character. Full bodied with intense tannins that are softened by the high level of alcohol. Flavors of black berries, black pepper and Wild Mountain herbs. Exceptionally long finish with freshness but rich at the same time.

Ready to drink. It will reach its peak in the next 4 to 6 years which will last for the following 10 years.

Classic red vinification in open oak vats and controlled temperature. Maceration lasts around 25 days. After maceration is complete the wine is racked into oak barrels (75% French oak, 25% US oak) for ageing over 10 months. All barrels are new and there are being replaced every four years.

with game; barbequed meat; stewed meat;
