Fritz Waßmer Syrah

Deeply coloured with intense fruit of pure blackberry, sandal wood, blueberry, mullberry and a hint of classic Syrah black pepper. Medium to full-bodied style, with intense black fruits and real concentration on the palate. The tannins are fine, the acidity firm but balanced, all leading to a medium length, pure, savoury finish. Notable for its intensity, presence, aromatic complexity and general sense of harmony. A perfectly balanced wine that’s a joy to drink. The is closest to a northern Rhone style Syrah.

Tasting Notes

A lot of black pepper, plum and raspberry in the bouquet, accompanied by a little green herbs. The body is dense and compact, with a lot of grip, youthful red and somewhat darker fruit, such as blueberries and blackberries, flanked by fine nuances of fennel and cocoa. This wine is just at the beginning of its development; its density will loosen, the firm structure will soften, its secrets will be revealed with a lot of air or a few years in the cellar.

Serving temperature: approx. 18°C.
