    Winemaker Notes

    A deep ruby red color. An aromatic bouquet with scents of candied cherry, cocoa and mint. Full-bodied and well-knit, displaying red fruit flavors together with nuances chocolate and cedar. 35% Grenache, 35% Carignan, and 30% Syrah.

    Outstanding served with grilled meats, hearty stews and aged cheeses.

    "Vigne Lavail" is part of a collection of single-vineyard wines from the Roussillon, each carefully selected by the Ey (pronounced like the letter "A") family. The "Lavail" vineyard is located in the village of Maury in southern France's Roussillon district. Nicolas Battle, winemaker, belongs in the vanguard of a dynamic new generation of enologists. Battle's viticultural philosophy embraces "sustainable agriculture," which reduces the use of artificial fertilizers and pesticides to a minimal level. This environmentally friendly approach requires constant monitoring of the vineyard and care on a vine per vine basis.

    Ey
    Ey (pronounced like the letter "A") is a collection of Grenache-based wines from the Roussillon district of southern France. Each wine under the Ey label is produced from a unique single vineyard site by individual winemakers selected by the Ey family. Like the winemakers with whom they work, the Eys are proud Catalans, a people with ancient roots and a rich cultural history in this Mediterranean land where France and Spain meet.

    Syrah/Shiraz

    View all wine

    Marked by unmistakable aromatics, a savory palate, and an elegant texture, Syrah is capable of producing fascinatingly complex and long-lived wines with a stunning purple hue. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah’s best examples are found in Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. It is also an important component of the GSM blends of the Southern Rhône and beyond, alongside Grenache and Mourvèdre. Both varietal Syrah and GSM blends are common in Australia and California and are gaining popularity in Washington State. In Australia, Syrah is known by the synonym Shiraz, which tends to indicate a bolder, fruit-driven style of wine, and is occasionally blended with Cabernet Sauvignon for added depth and structure.

    In the Glass

    At its best, Syrah shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper, smoke, and even bacon fat. Many examples from California aim to recreate this savory style, while others focus more on concentrated fruit flavors. In Australia, under the name Shiraz, it shines as that country’s unofficial signature red grape, producing deep, dark, intense, and often jammy reds.

    Perfect Pairings

    Cool-climate Syrah, with its peppery spices, is a natural match with flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb dishes, where the spice is more about flavor than heat. With Australian Shiraz, grown in warmer regions, heavy meat dishes with abundant protein and fat are a necessity to match the intensity of the wine.

    Sommelier Secret

    Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” this synonym for Syrah has been adopted by winemakers throughout the world. If the label says “Shiraz,” you can typically expect a plush, fruity, and potent wine made in the Australian style. New World "Syrah" will generally more closely resemble the French style.
