Degrassi Contarini Syrah Riserva
Istria and Primorje, Croatia
Syrah with a thick, dark ruby color. The grapes for this wine are grown in the area of Contarini, near Buje, a vineyard with white soil. Thanks to a low yield per hectare the grapes are of higher quality. The fermentation and maturation take place in small oak barrels for 18 months, after which comes the ageing in big wooden barrels for one year.
The bouquet is fruity, with aromas of strawberry and raspberry, followed by notes of cloves and licorice. On the palate, dominate the fruitiness and nicely rounded tannins. The finish is long with aromas of mature cherries.
