  • THE BRIEF
  • There woudln't be a wine bar, found anywhere in the world, that can proudly call itself such unless the wines of Herve Souhaut feature heavily on their list. Souhaut's Syrahz is the ultimate expressions of Southern France and will have anyone transfixed in mere seconds of drinking.

    His 2017 Syrah, made like a quality cru Beaujolais, uses carbonic maceration, wholebunch fruit and minimal sulfur regimes in order to retain the freshness and colour of the enigmatic vineyard; leaving you behind in a rainbow trail of bright purple colour, staining the glass and with it the lifted floral fragrance of cherry, violet and plum essence. This is natural wine per se, but it is sourced from one of the best plots of land for growing Syrah anywhere in the world (in the Ardeche, on a hill directly opposite Hermitage) and has the winemaking nous and technical know-how behind it to command the attention of all wine drinkers.

    Holy sheets - this is wonderful stuff. Do what you can to get in on the act.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • The Syrah is vinified in stainless steel, with whole bunches going through a long, cold maceration before undergoing a semi-carbonic fermentation. Malo is usually done in tank as well. From there the wines are moved to used barrels for a brief six to eight months of aging.

  • MIKE BENNIE - THE WINE FRONT


    Herve Souhat established his domaine in 1993 and holds a modest five hectares of vines in northern Rhone and the southern Ard¨che. Souhat employs only organic farming and uses very minimal intervention in his winemaking. They are typically wines of skeletal architecture and purity. The red wines are quite idiosyncratic, but generally find a broad appeal for their freshness of fruit, fine tannin and light weight feel. This is cool climate syrah from 40-year-old vines. Superb drinking ensues.'
