La PETITE FRANÇAISE
2015 Syrah - Cabernet Sauvignon
[ la p(ə)tit fʀɑ̃sɛz ] The Little French Girl
This collection was inspired by the luscious wines of southern France. French wine making involves many traditions passed on from generation to generation. In most of the country’s wine regions these traditions have been incorporated into the rules and regulations regarding the growing of grapes and the making of wines. The Languedoc wine region is more dynamic in its regulations regarding winemaking. This, along with ideal climate and terroir, provides the opportunity for young generations of vignerons to learn from their forefathers, yet use innovation and created new styles.
The Petite Française collection is quintessentially French, with a modern whimsy. Perfect for special events or everyday, to be enjoyed in the relaxed company of friends and family.
The red wine of this collection is a blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The two grapes types complement each other well, resulting in a wine that is fruit flavoured, and rich, with a balancing acidity.
