Precise quality management
The Syrah grapes from which this wine is made are from the Pays d’Oc PGI. Syrah is a French grape with roots in the Rhône valley. The Mediterranean climate has very hot, dry summers, and warmer winters. Syrah is particularly well-adapted to this climate and region, making aromatic wines with very good length.
Maison Castel know-how
Working with their long-term partner-growers, the Maison Castel team selects fruit with optimum ripeness from the best parcels. Vinification is closely overseen (particularly during the saignée process, to get the best possible concentration in terms of body and aromas). The Maison Castel oenologists' aim is good balance between the fruit and spice elements, and the optimum expression of grape character.
