Cru International

California Syrah Style

About This Wine

Raspberries and peppery spice blend in harmony to create an elegant flavour with soft, balanced tannins and a lingering, smooth finish. This is a California wine at its best.

Fun Fact

Pick a wine, any wine, and you’ll probably be able to effortlessly track its origins. That’s not the case of Syrah. While it is believed the vines have French origins, the name suggests otherwise. In fact, experts believe the wine has either Middle Eastern or Italian origins. Syrah may come either from the Persian city of Schiraz or from Syracuse, a Sicilian city renowned for its military power and influence in the ancient world.

Food Pairings

This nice and elegant red pairs well with aged, nutty cheeses like Gouda, and even better with a juicy grilled burger – perfect way to start your BBQ season!!
