2018 Rachis Shiraz
The Domaine Naturaliste Margaret River Syrah (Shiraz) is noteworthy because of its fragrance and attractiveness in its youth. A rachis (Latin botanical term) is the stalk to which the individual berries are attached to. This cuvee is so named because of the inclusion of 1/3 whole bunches (rachis) in the cuvee. The rachis contributes perfumes, tannin and flavours additional to the grapes. Why note pair this with Lamb chops grilled on an open flame, rich pasta dishes or aged deli meats.
