21 Colibri Rotie
97% Syrah. 3% Viognier
In the northernmost commune of the Rhone, almost in Beaujolais, lies the Côte Rôtie. Here we find the origins of a most curious winemaking style that has led the world in blending aromatic white grapes with powerful, masculine reds. In Rôtie only two grapes can be legally planted and grown these days if the derivative wine is to bear the appellation's name. These are Syrah and Viognier. Additionally, the two grapes must be harvested together and fermented together. Well…our Colibri rendition was blended after the fact, but it still bears a striking resemblance to these historic field blends.
