#WW Manzoni Syrah Monterey County


On a recent WineWalkabout Adventure to uncover some weeknight drinking wine, we came apon a lovely surprise. During this Adventure we came across this little gem of a Syrah from Manzoni Estate Vineyards. Located in the heart of Monterey Counties River Road Wine Trail this small family-owned and operated winery that produces small quantities of hand-crafted wines. The Syrah vines are grown in the 'Home Vineyard' which is planted to two Syrah clones: Estrella and Dijon 470. This is a great summer BBQ wine, or on second thoughts, for any time you would like it, and one that will be enjoyed by all who like a medium weight Syrah, with a red berry fruit, a bit of smoky meat and just the right amounts of acid and relatively rounded tannin's with a light pepper on the finish. The Syrah is a solid 6+ and ****, so buy a case as there were only 494 cases produced. So go on by Manzoni Estate Vineyards or to the Tasting room in Carmel and let em know we sent you, and tell em we say g'day! 

To happy Weeknight Wine!
Cheers,

WineWalkabout
