Fresh, fabulous Syrah from legendary French Rhone winery, Graillot.

+ PROFILE: Dry, but pleasantly fruity. Very balanced. Purple fruit, black berries, black plum, sandalwood. 

+ FUNDAMENTALS: Hand-harvested, destemmed. Cement fermentation, followed by time in stainless steel tanks and used oak barrels. 

+ BACKSTORY: Syrocco was founded by the late, legendary Rhône vigneron Alain Graillot, and now run byhis sons, Maxime and Antoine. Alain stumbled upon these vineyards and the Thalvin winery while bicycling in the Zenata region of Morocco between Casablanca and Rabat. This gorgeous area is an organic dream, with cool winds blowing off the Atlantic and no polluting industries whatsoever. The Thalvin winery has been around since the 1920’s, and when Alain found their gorgeous property, he formed a partnership with them to provide Syrah and Cinsault vines for his own Moroccan wines. Alain's sons, Maxime and Antoine, now craft these Old-World style wines of excellent balance, and complex aromatics.
