This dark ruby-hued Baron de Badassière Syrah displays inviting aromas of black pepper and licorice, while a tantalising medley of red fruits, alloyed with a subtle hint of cocoa, envelop the palate. Supple tannins and a vibrant finish make for a delightfully juicy and refreshing sip.

Baron de Badassière, Syrah is superb for drinking on its own with friends but due to the integrated, smooth tannins it's also lends itself perfectly to red meats and richer white meat dishes.

About the Producer

Baron de Badassière is from the Picpoul de Pinet region of the Languedoc, near the coast of the south of France. The name of the wine refers to the Badassière vineyard which lies near the small town of Pomérols. In the 18th century, the vineyard belonged to Baron Charles Emmanuel, a colourful character who was rumoured to be the illegitimate son of King Louis XV. The wines are made exclusively for Liberty Wines by winemaker Marguerite Vasseur and New Zealand consultant Matt Thomson, at the Cave de Pomérols cooperative where the Vignes de L'Eglise range is also produced.

Vineyard and Winery

The Syrah grapes for Baron de Badassière, Syrah were grown in vineyards around Badassière in the Languedoc in the south of France. This region benefits from a sunny, warm climate which encourages ripe flavours in the wines, while the coastal breezes help retain freshness and aromatics.

The grapes are destemmed and macerated on their skins for 20 days, then pressed in the pneumatic press. The must was cold settled and then fermented at a controlled temperature of 20°C - 23°C with regular racking off and pumping over.
