Wine Tasting Note: Bertie Syrah, 2002, Minervois, France.
Available from Oddbins for £6.99.
This delicious red hails from one of three Southern French properties owned by Englishman Robert 'Bertie' Eden; his most famous label being Comte Cathare (see the Orangutan wine). Bertie and his team employ biodynamic practices at their three properties.

This medium to full-bodied wine has a marvellous texture and gravelly tannins. Plenty of peppery black fruit flavours and a good lasting length. I am going to have to buy another bottle if only to try it with 'bruschetta topped with diced black pudding and apple sauce' as recommended on the Oddbins website.
Scribblings Rating - 92/100
