Rhone

The Rhone Valley is the birthplace of Syrah which dominates wine production in this region. The region itself is split into Northern and Southern Rhone, with prices increasing as you venture further north. Most of the wines here are a blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre (GSM) and are generally juicy, medium-to-full body and tannin, with medium acidity. The flavour profile is raspberry, blackberry, rosemary, baking spice, and lavender. Rhone wines pair well with many types of food, especially Mediterranean cuisine. Winemaking history in Rhone is thousands of years old and sub-region Châteauneuf-du-Pape was the first official appellation.
