Recanati Upper Galilee Syrah 2019
Gorgeous deep ruby red colour with violet hues. Distinct Shiraz aromas of dark plum, violets, lavender and black pepper with a hint of spicy oak. Don’t be fooled by the 12.5% alcohol – this is a full-bodied and rich glass of red wine. With robust flavours of black cherries, purple plum, ripe raspberries and cassis. Traces of mocha, black pepper, tobacco, nutmeg and oak spices balance the wine’s fruity characters. Refreshing, with a velvety mouthfeel and background of soft tannins. If you’re not a fan of dry wines this is not the bottle for you.
100% Shiraz from an outstanding plot in the Upper Galilee vineyard. The grapes are harvested and transported to the winery in the early hours of the morning. The grapes are then destemmed without crushing and fermented for 7–10 days, with a percentage of the grapes still whole. The wine ages for a period in French Oak before bottling.
Over the years, Recanati Winery has identified the finest growing plots in the Upper Galilee. The new Upper Galilee Series concentrates on presenting classic varieties from this wonderful terroir, extracting the characteristic complexity and refinement of each individual variety.
