No’6. Syrah 2020 By Domaine Gayda
Bold & Spicy
Braised Beef or Lamb
Syrah wines are produced in moderate and hot climates, their thick skins requiring a healthy dose of sun to allow them to ripen. They tend to be deeply coloured, with medium-high tannin and medium acidity levels. Specifically selected for its depth of flavour, this Syrah incudes fruit sourced from Rousillon & Minervois-la-Livinière where the grapes are organically grown. Aromas of red berries and black pepper spice on the nose. The palate is rich with subtle oak character and fine tannins leading to the long finish.
The family owned estate of Domaine Gayda, led by winemaker Vincent Chansault, has been on a mission since 2004 to forge a new modern winemaking reputation for Languedoc Rousillon, through creating wines of exceptional quality from unusual grape varieties, all expressing the widely ranging terroir of the region. Planted across varying soil types and altitudes, its four main fully organic sites vary from non indigenous varieties like Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc, to classic Mediterranean stalwarts like Syrah.
This wine was created using a traditional and non-interventionist vinification method, consisting of a pre-ferment maceration and then wild fermentation. This was followed by a malolactic fermentation with 60% matured in stainless steel, and 40% matured in old oak barrels.
