The speciality of Cave de Tain - Masters of Syrah in the northern Rh�ne. The signature of the Cave, this beautiful syrah shows delicate red fruits, well-balanced and round plummy fruit with typical peppery notes. A nicely structured wine with a twist of smoky spice and green olives on the finish.
Country Of Origin: France
At the foot of the famous Hermitage hillside, the Cave de Tain l'Hermitage cooperative produces five appellation contr�l�e wines, namely Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, St-Joseph, Cornas and St-P�ray. Cave de Tain also owns a 21 hectare domaine within the prestigious Hermitage appellation and the head winemaker, Xavier Frouin supervises each stage of vinification, from grape reception, classified according to quality, right up to bottling. The Cave has established an enviable reputation for authentic wines bearing the full character of their individual terroirs, bringing out the best through careful and non-intrusive vinification methods. As it has grown, traditional wine making techniques have remained whilst benefitting from the latest developments in modern winemaking. Cave de Tain's new cellars were completed in late 2014; a total investment of �10m has dramatically reinvigorated winemaking facilities, increasing the Cave's quality potential without increasing production capacity. Speaking at the inauguration of the new cellars, Jancis Robinson said "Cave de Tain has always been managed with a true passion for the production of quality wines and extensive consumer insight. It is one of the best cooperative wineries in France, but also one of the best producers of northern C�tes-du-Rh�ne wines".
