Syrah


The Bernard Series – Basket Press Syrah (Episode 194 Part 2)

Compared to the wine we tasted in part one we really enjoyed this one full of flavour, just the right balance of alcohol tannins and fruit – thoroughly recommended!

Stella Organics Star Catcher Shiraz (Episode 194 Part 1)

In this episode, we taste Shiraz wine from South Africa.

In this, the first part of the episode, we taste an organic Shiraz, the Stella Organics Star Catcher.

Grown on the semi-arid landscape of the Western Cape the grapes are subjected to the hot midday sun followed by chilly nights helping to give the wine it’s taste profile.

The wine has a little purple in it’s colour.

On the nose, it smells of Cherries and John M detected some blackcurrant.

On the taste, the blackcurrant was not so obvious but the cherry was still very much there.

John M felt the wine was slightly light which made it “juicy” but not a wine to sit down to and enjoy, more of a wine to enjoy while chatting to friends.

Priorat Wine (Episode157)

In this episode, we taste a Priorat from Catalunya in Spain.

This wine is a blend of Garnacha, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mazuela and Syrah and, given it’s alcohol by volume of 14.5%, it has a very light taste making it very interesting and easy to drink. Perhaps too easy!

The wine is Sainsbury’s own “Taste the Difference” brand and was available at the time of publishing for £12.00

Aldi Australian Shiraz (Episode 206 – Part 1)

Shiraz is the signature grape for Australia, so we are expecting great things.

This particular Australian Shiraz is from Aldi’s own Exquisite range and costs at the time of writing £5.70p.

John M managed to smell Cherry, eucalyptus, chocolate and coffee on the nose while John M only managed to smell cherry!

John M, however, was not able to get anything but the cherry on the taste and so was left slightly disappointed.

He was however impressed by the balance of tannins in this wine.

John L felt this wine would be a good introduction to Shiraz for those that did not like their reds too powerful.
