Nothing beats a good Syrah (Shiraz) and now that winter is coming it is the perfect Wine of the Month! It is certainly a favourite with Doros Hadjiantonas as it was the first wine he and Natacha made to give as Millennium gifts to their family and friends!
The Syrah grape is now the 7th most common grape in the world and grows extremely well in Cyprus as it is perfectly suited to the soil and climate. Syrah can be used as a varietal and blended and Doros does both! Syrah is a spicy full-bodied red which has the distinctive smell of blackberry. Because it is a lively wine with a light peppery hint it goes perfectly with beef, pork, barbecued meats and of course spicy foods such as Indian, Mexican and South African. Whilst is tastes good as a young wine it tastes even better when it is 6-7 years old! 13.5% vol.
