"Now I knew that Syrah can perform well in a diverse range of climates, but for some reason I still didn’t expect to find it grown in Switzerland.

This is one of the more full-bodied and opulent Syrahs produced in the country – at 14.5% it’s not going to be a shrinking violet! – to show how far Swiss Syrah can go. Only 900 bottles of this 2009 were made (we were tasting bottle 0645). It’s full of spice and berries, but smooth. There’s still some oak apparent but it’s well integrated. The tannins are soft and supple. Some might find it a touch over-extracted but I thought it downright delicious!

For comparison, to me it brings to mind Saint-Joseph (northern Rhône) or Hawke’s Bay (North Island of NZ) – two excellent Syrah producing areas." Frankly Wines (frankstero.com)

Flo says of the 2011 (July 2018): This Flamboyant Syrah sings of black fruits and peppery spice. This dense and generously fruity palette is balanced with finessed tannins. Pair with Venison or game for an ideal pairing.
