Joubert Tradauw Syrah

4 Stars Platter 2017

Joubert Tradauw Syrah is a superb natural Syrah, farmed organically (although not certified) and fermented with the grapes own natural yeasts. It's full of red and black fruit flavours, a little white pepper and a long lingering finish. This is a great wine from a true artisan winemaker. Very low in additives of course and bottled unfiltered.

Joubert Tradauw Syrah

4 Stars Platter 2017

New vintage 2015. A natural wine fermented with the grapes' own yeast. Hand picked grapes, the ferment was hand plunged several times a day for 12 days. It was aged for 14 months in French oak (300 litre and 500 litre), 30% new (to give maximum oak), 30% 3rd fill and 40% 4th fill to impart more subtle flavours.

It was bottled unfiltered as usual for Meyer, to retain all the goodness and flavour so decanting or careful pouring is advised to avoid sediment.

Meyer's tasting notes state:

"This wine has a full and lively effect on the palate with a spicy cherry note and hint of guava. Earthy with soft tannins and good acidity followed by a lingering finish. Drink now through 2025."

I've just tasted it. It was too cold as it had literally just been unloaded off the wagon but I needed to get some tasting notes up on here as soon as possible. It had also not rested. However it was still excellent!

Red and black fruit with some white pepper. Very smooth, almost silky, with a good backbone of acidity and some noticeable oak on the finish. Like all Meyer's wines everything is beautifully integrated. Very "Rhone" in style with a slight citrus lift on the finish.
