Treveri Cellars continues to amaze me with the unique sparkling wines they produce at fantastic prices. Most people have tasted Blanc de Blanc, sparkling Rose or even a sparkling Riesling, but with these folks you get to taste one of my favorite sparking wines - Syrah! Where some others have fallen short, this Demi-Sec sparkling Syrah from Treveri has hit the mark. Extremely dark in the glass, almost opaque, you can't even see the bubbles in the glass, leaving you to wonder it it really is flat. But fear not! This wine is a thing of beauty. Micro bubbles tickle the senses and the nose is immediately welcomed by dark cherries, scorched earth, and French bread. In the mouth in a delicious combination of the same, with some tree bark and sweet raspberry preserves in the back end. This is such an easy drinker and a fun alternative from white sparkling wines.
About this wine:
This wine is on the sweeter side and will have a great appeal to those who don't traditionally drink sparkling wines because they feel they are too dry. With 30 grams of sugar per litre, you get a sweet and tasty treat.
