Domaine Ouled Thaleb Syrocco, Zenata, Morocco, 2018 (750ml)
Made from selected parcels of organic, old-vine Syrah, it has a deep ruby colour with an expressive nose of black cherry, dried rosemary and licorice. The medium-bodied palate replays the nose. This Syrah would fool most people who would think it’s from northern Rhône.
ABOUT THE WINERY
The brainchild of Crozes Hermitage (Northern Rhone, France) superstar Alain Graillot, this wine is produced at the modern winery of Thalvin, not far from Casablanca, Morocco! The idea for Syrocco was born while Alain Graillot was vacationing in Morocco. Alain realized how the terroir of this region mirrored his vineyards in the Northern Rhone. A collaboration was born between Alain and the modern winery of Domaine Ouled Thaleb and the result was Syrocco.
