Donkey & Goat - Fenaughty Syrah

Donkey & Goat - Fenaughty Syrah

DONKEY & GOAT

The Brandt’s have always had a strong focus on Rhône varietals and this Northern Rhône style Syrah from Fenaughty delivers the soaked soil, peppery, blackberry, characteristics of the region they aspire to emulate. Given the tobacco, floral, and raspberry nose and meaty, grippy palate of this bottling, we are sure you’ll be happy to put it against it’s French equivalents. Harvested earlier than most in the region for acidity, and freshness, they strive to maintain these wonderful aromatic qualities. We’re very proud to offer you our small allocation of this wonderful Syrah.
