More about this wine

Gamaret gives a full and textured body and Syrah adds peppery and fruit notes.

In the nose, pepper and black fruit, especially damson and black cherry, as well as some toasted notes. On the palate, fruit and spice and elegant oak, balanced tannins. Very fresh and peppery.

A very flexible red wine. Fabulous with mushroom dishes, also a surprisingly great match with baked cheese dishes from Swiss Raclette to Tartiflette, five cheese pasta and white lasagna. Try it with cottage pie, duck breast with cherry sauce or with 4 pepper lamb chops.

Ben says (May 2017): What a lovely wine this is! Once the 2012 is gone, the new vintage will be from the rebranded range of 'Trésor' (treasure) and will be called "Trésor Gamaret Syrah". We look forward to stocking more of this beautiful treasure.
