Syracha, Richard Bray
"I started making wine in the Roussillon in 2008, helping my pal Andy at both Coume del Mas and Mas Cristine. In 2016, I vinified three parcels separately, as much for proof of concept as anything else. It was my own take on the Roussillon’s under-appreciated terroir. Making a little more year after year, in 2019, I decided to throw my hat in for a lot more. As each year has presented new challenges, I’ve become less concerned with doing the same thing harvest after harvest, and more interested in capturing the best that the vintage has to offer. My approach is hands off, and the vines are currently under organic conversion"

Tasting Notes Fresh and hedonistic black fruits along with firm tannins make this a powerful wine. The pepper spice and finesse add complexity to this elegant red.
