FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
There's a lot to love about the Les Peyrautins range; the wines are classy, modern, flavour-packed releases from the pays d'oc region and they consistently offer quality well above their sub $20 case price.
This 2020 syrah grenache blend is in sensational form. The palate is plush and engaging and it's flooded with red berry fruit flavours while subtle herbal notes play a supporting role. The syrah and grenache components meld seamlessly and create a full-bodied, luxurious glass of wine that fills the mouth with flavour.
If you're looking for a red wine that ticks every box on the 'winter warmer' checklist, look no further. Les Peyrautins is playing your song and it's the perfect wine to see you through the cooler months.
Sam Kim writes "This is warm, generous and soothing with dried cherry, thyme, smoked game and roasted hazelnut aromas on the nose, followed by a beautifully rounded palate that's ripe and supple. Complex and engaging with a lengthy velvety finish."
The winery writes 'Crafted according to our old tradition, this syrah-grenache has been produced using modern techniques by our winemakers. The result is a perfect combination of the new and old world, offering a wonderful red wine, displaying an exciting blackberry-violet flavour with hints of blackcurrant and some cherry."
