The Back Roads Petite Sirah 2017
R265.00 Vat Incl
Nickname : The Fat Butcher
This is a big meaty wine, made for dark winters nights and romantic fireplaces.
A deep purple in colour makes cleaning the bottling equipment a real bitch. Often used in blends to give more colour and depth.
Its French name for this grape is Durif. Americans have long referred to it as Petite Sirah, which is strange as it is anything but Petite and the Sirah is spelt incorrectly.
For people who like biog bold wines with plenty of body and oomph.
Best paired with Purple Rain by Prince
