Cave de Tain Saint Joseph ‘Esprit de Granit’
Grape Variety: 100% Syrah
At the foot of the famous hill of Hermitage, the Cave de Tain co-operative produces five appellation d'origine contrôlée wines: Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Saint-Joseph, Cornas and Saint-Péray. The Cave has established an enviable reputation for authentic wines that express the full character of their individual terroirs, thanks to careful and non-intrusive vinification methods. Over the years, traditional techniques have been enhanced by the latest developments in modern winemaking and significant investment, increasing the Cave's ability to produce top quality wines.
Tasting Note: An appealing perfumed nose of intense liquorice and vanilla leads to a palate characteristically mineral with delicious sweet dark fruit, good balance and evident but ripe tannins.
