Cave de Tain St. Péray 2013

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London [www.nicolas.co.uk ] for £10.Saint Peray is a small appellation [the whole appellation only has 58 hectares under vine ] created in 1936 for still and sparkling wines from the two communes of Saint Peray and Toulard on the west bank of the northern Rhone valley made from a blend of the roussanne and marsanne grapes.80% of production is sparkling but my bottle is a still wine and was made by the Cave de Tain co-operative.I started the bottle last night with my fish supper and I did enjoy it. There is some melon and peach stylefruit there but there is also an acidic citrus type finish and also a suggestion of a floral taste as well.Anyway it went well with the fish

Cave de Tain:
  When you think Cave de Tain, your mind should instantly jump to Syrah. Syrah is the only red varietal that Cave de Tain makes into wine, making it a specialist in its production.

  When you think Cave de Tain, your mind should instantly jump to Syrah. Syrah is the only red varietal that Cave de Tain makes into wine, making it a specialist in its production. Not only that, but it is also the leading producer of “cru” wines in the Northern Rhone Valley, with about 2,500 acres of grapes planted. Cave de Tain is a collective of about 330 growers located in Rhone Valley, France. Louis Gambert de Loche founded Cave de Tain in 1933 and became its first president. The wines produced as a part of the Cave de Tain l’Hermitage are sourced across many terroirs and domaines, including Crozes Hermitage, Hermitage, Cornas, Saint Peray, Saint Joseph, and Vin de Pays. Not only does it encompass wine produced across these regions, but it produces almost half of the wine grown in the Crozes Hermitage. Read less

Beautiful pencil lead, garrigue and mint nose. Much lighter in body than the others. Menthol, medium tannin and acid. Simple but pleasant. Red fruit. Definitely old world. An odd hint of lemon on the finish.
