Vin de France
France > North-Rhône
(Estimated 85% Viognier 15% Syrah)
A very unique wine. A red made mostly from a white grape. Some like to say it’s a reversed Côte-Roties, as the famous appellation is usually made from an inverted blend of Syrah and Viognier. Some would also say it’s an orange wine, as actually, yes, it’s a maceration of majority white grapes. The color reminds us of pinot grigio ramato, or some other interesting blends of white and red varieties. The taste is absolutely unique. Very pleasant and playful at first, then the signature of Syrah comes in and gives it real structure and depth.
