Le Baron Syrah - Grenache

Le Baron Syrah Grenache Domaine Saint Hilaire

A luxurious and spicy blend of hand-picked Syrah and Grenache. 

This top-quality wine is made from a blend of Syrah and Grenache grapes, hand-picked from 30-35 year-old vines on some of our best parcels of land. This results in intense fruit flavours characteristic of these classic varieties from the South of France.  Aged for 12-14 months in French oak barrels this beautifully made wine is ready to drink now but will continue to improve for many years to come.

Aromas of dark berries, liquorice and spices combine with balanced tanins and a long sensuous finish make this wine perfect with game and strongly flavoured dishes.
