“Wine is like people. The wine takes all the influences in life all around it, it absorbs them and it gets its personality."

French Kiss (1995) – Luc (Kevin Kline)

 

This tasting is part of the extensive research that we are doing here at the Wine Watch.  Tonight we are testing some of the top New World Rhone varietal wines to see who makes the finest wines from this country in the Shiraz and Grenache based wines.

Syrah or Shiraz is one of the few red grape varietals that can by itself be made into a world class wine capable of being cellared for decades. Although the names are not identical- the grape varietal is the same.

There are many speculations as to the origin of this varietal but DNA profiling in 1999 found Syrah to be the offspring of two obscure grapes from southeastern France, Dureza and Mondeuse Blanche. Syrah should not be confused with Petite Sirah, a synonym for Durif, a cross of Syrah with Peloursin dating from 1880.

Grenache is the main varietal in the Southern Rhone and although most people know that Chateauneuf Du Pape is mostly Grenache by law it could also be 100% Syrah.  These are the two main varietals in the Rhone Valley and tonight we have some of the greatest examples of these varietals from this country. 

The fee for this tasting which includes dinner is $195 + tax, for reservations call 954-523-9463 or e-mail andy@winewatch.com
