Chateau La Nerthe Chateauneuf de Pape 2016
Syrah / Shiraz
Alcohol Volume: 13%
Tasting Notes: Ruby red liquid that initially surprised as I was expecting more power and weight, instead what I found was delicacy and perfume. Le Nerthe have a deft touch when it comes to managing time spent in oak and the heat of region. Red fruits predominate here showing Grenache’s influence with hints of black pepper, garrigue and wood smoke from Syrah and Mourvedre.
Style: Chateauneuf de Pape
Food Pairing: Lamb
