    This exuberant variety is tamed into a very composed and polished style with an array of ripe red plums, mulberries and boysenberries. Super chalky and crunchy tannins here. This is a superb wine. Pure petite sirah. Drink or hold.

While it originated in France, it is now primarily cultivated in drier climates such as Australia, California, and Israel due to its preference for extended hang time and resistance to bunch rot in such conditions. The grape's preference for a dry and hot microclimate makes regions like Rutherglen, Victoria, an ideal location for its cultivation, as seen in Australia. In the winery, careful maceration is required to prevent over-extraction, while barrel-aging often involves American oak to complement its tannic structure.
