Saint-Joseph La Source Rouge, Domaine Ferraton, Rhone, France 2017
Regular price £23.95
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.
Saint-Joseph La Source Rouge 2017
100% Syrah. Blackcurrant and blackberry fruit give way to savoury notes of black olive and pepper. The tannins are bold, rich and mouthcoating but there is a refreshing minerality to the finish.
