The Grape Miniseries -- Syrah
Syrah is one of tastiest grapes in the world but because it changes based on where it's grown, it can be a bit of a risk to buy. In this episode, we cover the fundamentals of Syrah, why it ranges in flavor and what to expect from the regions that make it.
Côtes du Rhône and Grenache Blanc
This week we are talking about Côtes du Rhône white wines and the Grenache Blanc grape.In the cold weather months we tend to focus on lots of full bodied red wines and sometime we needs a break from the reds. We love white wines and winter is the perfect time to talk about medium to full bodied whites which is why we are talking about whites from Côtes du Rhône.
TheRhoneValley lies in southeast France. From the town of Vienne in the north to Avignon in the south theRhoneRiver runs south for roughly 120 miles. TheRhoneValley is actually two valleys with Syrah being the main varietal grown in the north. In the southernRhoneregionthe king grape is Grenache, which is usually blended with Syrah, Mouvedre, Cinsault and Carignan. On this podcast we review five CotesDuRhones and two Cru wines from the villages of Gigondas & St. Joseph. Once again we convened a panel of tasters to help us evaluate the wines. Open up a bottle ofRhonewine and join us as we explore the rich red wines of theRhoneValley.
