Glen Carlou Syrah 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Dark red with purple hue. Aroma: Aniseed, mulberries, dark chocolate and black currants with herbal tea notes. Flavor: Rich complex flavors of ripe berries with hints of spicy oak and pepper on the palate. Finish: Soft and elegant tannins with intense and lingering fruit flavors and rich mouth feel. General: Geographically and stylistically, midway between the new and the old-world wine regions. This complex wine is produced by dropping half the crop, to make a dense and powerful wine.

A warm welcome to Glen Carlou, situated in the heart of South Africa’s scenic Paarl Valley. The warm, dry summers and cold, wet winters of this area combine with an exciting variety of slopes and the riches of our soils to create unique winegrowing conditions. Glen Carlou was established in 1985 and since 2003 has been successfully owned and run by Hess Family Estates. To harness our farm’s vast winegrowing potential, our vines are meticulously selected in terms of rootstock and clone, while every variety is carefully chosen for its compatibility to the terroir. Yields are kept rigorously low, ensuring that nature’s gifts are distilled in the flavourful grapes that we harvest. And in the cellar our winemaker Arco Laarman and his team join forces with nature to create three distinctive wine ranges. Read less

Syrah 2006 - Glen Carlou: Diesen Rotwein sollten Sie unbedingt probieren, er ist einer der besten Shiraz-Weine Südafrikas.Das Glas wird von einem intensiven Violett erfüllt. Das ausdrucksstarke Bukett betört mit Aromen von dunklen, würzigen Beerenfrüchten und Röstnoten. Sein kräftiger und komplexer Charakter entsteht durch die einjährige Fassreife in amerikanischen und französischen Eichenfässern. Am Gaumen präsentiert er einen Reichtum an reifen Früchten, wie schwarzen Johannisbeeren, die mit den  Gewürznoten einen beeindruckenden saftigen Körper entstehen lassen. Das Finale ist lang und satt. Dieser Rotwein passt perfekt zu Barbecue mit süßlichen Saucen, dunklem Fleisch oder Cheddar. Er sollte eine Stunde vor dem Genuss geöffnet werden.Weingut: Glen CarlouAnbauregion: PaarlRebsorte: 94% Shiraz, 5% Mourvedre, 1% ViognierInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,9 g/lRestsüße: 2,9 g/lFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate)Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18 °CLagerfähigkeit: 7-10 Jahre ab JahrgangAuszeichnungen:4,5 Platter StarsVeritas SilberMichelangelo GoldMundus Vini Gold Rotwein > Südafrika > Paarl - Franschhoek
