Domaine la Sarabande 'Misterioso'

Availability: In stock

A blend of Grenache and Syrah. This wine has a deep rich ripe cherry appearance. The aromas are of baked dark cherries, roasted peanuts, leather and nutmeg spice smells too. spice. The palate is again dominated by cherries but there is some attractive strawberry characters, dried herbs and pepper combined with fine tannins. The wine finishes dry but a balanced acidity helps to lengthen the palate.

This wine is suitable for vegans.

More information:

The Misterioso 2012 was made from a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah from our vines in Autignac. Our Grenache vineyard is on heavier clay and sandy soils which gives the wine a plump juicy character. The orientation of the slope means the fruit ripens evenly without cooking the fruit and creating a wine of high alcohol. The vineyards have been minimally worked to avoid compaction of the subsoil and sprayed with organic sprays to prevent mildew are common in the district.

The grapes were harvested by hand when it was determined that the sugar, acidity and taste was to our liking. The grapes were crushed and de-stemmed and placed in a thousand liters fermenter with open tops. No yeast culture was added to the fermentation was completely natural. Temperature and nutrient levels were closely monitored and ferment lasted ten days. All varieties were vinified separately. The wine was racked and sulfur dioxide was added after full malolactic fermentation to preserve the wine from oxidation.

"The 2012 Faugères Misterioso is a terrific blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah that that was brought up all in stainless steel. It gives up lots of jammy blackberry, licorice, graphite and crushed rock nuances in its medium to full-bodied, rounded, supple and pure profile. It’s already hard to resist and will drink nicely for 4-5 years, possibly longer."  90 points, Robert Parker
