Domaine Faury Collines Rhodaniennes Syrah 2011

This northern Rhone wine is grown on schist and is primarily fermented in older oak. All this new age approach with wild ferments and temperature controlled ferments at lower temperatures to let the wine full develop. This wine is the vin de pays which means it is for immediate enjoyment. Generally the wines from this estate are classically style with wonderful structure underneath.

If you want a bit of graphite in your wine grab a bottle of this. It is like being smacked over the head with a large wand of graphite. Then you would be cuddled by your grandma. It is soft and refined in a medium bodied style with red berry flavours coming through. When I say red berry flavours they are fruit flavours but in the savoury end of the spectrum. I would get these out now as the flavours are open and inviting with none of that oakiness mouldering the joy.
