Profile: Labelling a wine as Syrah or Shiraz used to be indicative of origin however now tends to refer to style. Wines labelled as Syrah will be in the classic French style, medium bodied, blue fruited and showing lovely peppery spice whereas Shiraz tends to be fuller in body, with riper red and black fruit character indicating a warmer climate - the Australian style. The variety responds very well to oak maturation, adding tannic structure to the fruity frame, allowing for extreme ageability. It is also a very good blending grape, adding richness, fruit and structure.
Classic Regions: Rhone Valley (France), Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale (Australia), Hawkes Bay (New Zealand)

From the founding of the estate to this day, the Guiberts have drawn on that ancient tradition, farming organically, harvesting by hand, and sparing no effort to respect nature and allow the free expression of the distinctive Gassac terroir.
