Handcrafted from a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah grapes selected for their vibrant, fresh character. Each of these three grapes adds something special to the wine. Grenache gives body, warmth and hints of blackberry and blackcurrant Cinsault adds aromatic cherry blossom on the nose, finesse, and a supple texture to the finish Syrah accounts for BELAIRE's beautiful color and provides roundness and a toasty richness to the wine.

Region: South France
Syrah also known as Shiraz, is a dark-skinned grape variety grown throughout the world and used primarily to produce red wine. In 1999, Syrah was found to be the offspring of two obscure grapes from southeastern France, Dureza and Mondeuse Blanche. Syrah should not be confused with Petite Sirah, a cross of Syrah with Peloursin dating from 1880. The style and flavor profile of wines made from Syrah is influenced by the climate where the grapes are grown with moderate climates tending to produce medium to full-bodied wines with medium-plus to high levels of tannins and notes of blackberry, mint and black pepper. In hot climates, Syrah is more consistently full-bodied with softer tannin, jammier fruit and spice notes of licorice, anise and earthy leather. In many regions the acidity and tannin levels of Syrah allow the wines produced to have favorable aging potential.
Syrah is an amazing food wine. Pair with:
- Spiced lamb
