  • Gold, China Wine & Spirits Awards (CWSA), 2019

This is a rich and silky Syrah – a collaboration between our winemaker Mark Hoddy and a top grower, Jean-Charles Duran, in the heart of Roussillon’s Maury. Black schistous soils lend mineral finesse to peppery black fruit with herbal finesse.

It’s thanks to the encouragement of our own winemaker Mark Hoddy that Jean-Charles Duran decided to leave the local co-op. Now he makes amazing reds in his own tiny shed winery on his equally small Maury estate deep in the Roussillon. With Mark by his side he learnt techniques quickly and the result has been some terrific wines. This is the sort of Syrah that dreams are made of (hence the name) – powerful, silky, black fruit and spice with smoky, liquorice notes and herbal hints. Quality is so good at Jean-Charles’ estate, thanks to meticulous vineyard care, that the winemaking almost takes care of itself. It’s finished with 10 months in finest French oak barrels. Ideally decant first – we recommend serving with roast lamb or at a barbecue.
