Margerum Wine Company is committed to using only the
highest quality grapes in order to make handcrafted wines
that are indicative of the place where they are grown.
The wines are produced naturally, and the scale of production
is kept at a level where they can “know” the wine as
it is raised to the bottle.
is generally the most approachable and Old World-style
in the entire Margerum single vineyard Syrah
program. Very dark in color, with pepper and meaty aromas
jumping out of the glass. Very savory on the palate,
with burnt cocoa and “sauvage” character. The stunning
2008 vintage was aged for 20 months in a combination
of two new and six used Françoise Frères
Excellent with the “Grilled Lamb Kebabs” from our Wines
