Crozes-Hermitage La Matinière, Domaine Ferraton, Rhone, France 2019
Regular price £22.40
Overlooking the river in the Rhône Valley, Domaine Ferraton was established in 1946 and has been a fine example of the region’s viticulture ever since. The estate is known for its production of wines displaying exemplary structure with elegant fruit flavours and a tasteful hint of new oak.
The Ferraton family started working with Rhone legend Michel Chapoutier in 1998. This eventually led to Chapoutier purchasing the estate in 2004 but maintaining it as an independent entity, with the Ferraton family very much still at the helm on a day-to-day basis.

100% Syrah. Expressive and perfumed Syrah, with notes of succulent black cherry, toast, meat and violets. The tannins are silky and in perfect balance with the fresh acidity. The finish is long and harmonious.
