a new feature, we’ll be featuring wines under the heading of ‘Just because…’, well, just because we like them.

2019 Faury Syrah Collines Rhodaniennes

On Sale for $24.99

Third generation winegrower Lionel Faury produces six distinct cuvees of Syrah across the Northern Rhone appellations of St Joseph, Cote-Rotie and beyond. Faury’s Collines Rhodaniennes Syrah is the product of vines grown on a plateau above his St Joseph holdings. The wine is aged for 10 months in large, neutral barrels and is intended as a youthful expression of Syrah focused on the unique interplay of the fruity and savory characteristics of the varietal. The 2019 rendition features very ripe red and black fruit aromas and flavors along with warm, earthy background notes. The palate possesses a chunky texture as well as bright, finishing acidity which contributes to an overall sense of freshness and balance.

Not a bit too brooding, this Syrah could be described as charmingly rustic…or as just plain delicious.
