This charming southern French wine hails from Languedoc-based winemakers Xavier Roger. The name of the wine is derived from the Syrah grape growth cycle - exactly 229 days between the bud break in Spring and the leaf fall in Autumn. The area's climatic conditions with hot, dry summers are perfect for letting Syrah reach its optimum ripeness, while maintaining natural elegance and balance.
229 Syrah is a great wine, brimming with black fruit aromas. The palate is bold and full-bodied with dense ripeness of blueberry and an underlay of black olive. The finish is unctuous, juicy and lingers with tannins that are silky soft. Try with beef, barbecued meats, casserole dishes with mushroom or aubergine., or mature cheeses.
Mastering the nuances of Southern French varietals and combining traditional and modern winemaking techniques, Xavier Roger wines are a superb example of the quality that are now being produced in the South of France. Using the best parcels in the area, for a range that is truly outstanding.
Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians.
