This Saint Joseph red Syrah is full-bodied with a lovely freshness.

Domaine Bernard Gripa is producing astonishing Syrah (Shiraz) in the Saint Joseph appellation. This wine is from older vineyards that range from 30 to 45 years old.

The vineyards are planted on terraces of granite soil specific to this appellation. Saint Joseph is showing a great nose of blackberries, black pepper and a dense full-bodied taste. A lovely freshness and saltiness on the palate makes it unique. It would be ideally paired with lamb roast, beef stew or spicy dishes.

You can cellar it for a good ten years or enjoy it in its youth by decanting it at least 45 minutes before serving. 100% Syrah (Shiraz).

"The Saint Joseph red from Domaine Gripa is a top level Syrah from the Rhône Valley. You can expect a lot of complexity, full-bodied taste with a lot of elegance. Yes, that combination exists with this wine!"

The vineyards in Saint Joseph – like most in the northern Rhône Valley – are planted on terraces. It means there is no use of machines, with all work done by hand. Gripa’s team are vigilant in their care. The vinification is traditional and the wines undergo their maturation in 228 litre French oak barrels.
