Vivino : 4.0
GRAPE VARIETY : 83% Syrah, 17% Viognier
SOILS : Syrah: Stony clay-limestone soil, made up of pebbles from the former bed of the river Aude.
The soils are deep, which avoids the stress caused by lack of water to which Syrah is very sensitive.
Viognier : Clay soil, slightly salty, from the dry lake of Marseillette.
The vines are located between Carcassonne and Lezignan- Corbières in the middle valley of the Aude.
They are pruned in "Guyot" (trellised).
Average age: 25 years.
Yields : 50 hl/ha for the Syrah, 65 hl/ha for the Viognier.
VINIFICATION : The Viognier and Syrah grapes are blended at harvest time.
The two varieties are destemmed and vinified like a traditional red wine in concrete vats with two pump-overs per day.
The vatting period is quite short (about ten days) to keep the fruit.
TASTING NOTES : Révélation Syrah-Viognier has an attractive purple-red colour.
Very aromatic, this wine has a floral dominance of lily and violet, as well as a hint of pear and apricot, characteristic of the Viognier contribution.
It is a wine of great finesse, round and long in the mouth.
FOOD & WINE : Serve at 17-18°C. It goes perfectly with a spicy dish, meat in sauce or a chocolate dessert.
