Description

The wine is as intense as you would expect from an emissary from the arid land of the crusades, with the fragrance of balsam and savoury spices plus a top note of some dried herbs, but it manages to remain wonderfully fresh and appetising on the finish too after intense, ripe, quite complex fruit. Eastern promise indeed! I really don’t think many people would be disappointed by what this wine has to offer. It is 14.6% alcohol but is chock-full of flavour. Jancis Robinson, (17)

  • Delivery Information

The Saadé family planted 12 hectares (30 acres) of vines in the first decade of this century (first vintage 2006), at 6,250 wire-trained vines per hectare. Yields average just 30 hl/ha (c 1.7 ton/acre) in this dry climate. They use no pesticides or herbicides. Soils are limestone, clay and flint, and cereal crops are planted between rows to improve aeration of the soil and to bolster organic matter. Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes are treated to the usual classed-growth standards such as being picked into small crates and double sorted.

"The Syrian Vineyard making the world's most dangerous wine". Made despite great adversity with the help of outstanding consultant Stephane Derenencourt, the Saadé brothers, Sandro and Karim, farm this fantastic vineyard 900m above sea level with shingle and limestone terroirs. Situated just near the port of Latakia (once known as Laodicea) and near what was the ancient city of Antioch, this is home to some of the most ancient vineyards in the world, producing for over 3000 years.

Something Different

Every New Year’s Eve, I cook a feast of a certain cuisine. This year it was Syrian (from Imad Alarnab’s Syrian Kitchen recipe book cum autobiography). I was surprised to even find a Syrian wine. Bargylus is a mid to full bodied red with plenty of fruity flavours. It went really well with the Middle Eastern spices I had cooked with, and didn’t overpower the lighter dishes (eg labneh cheese with okra). I could also enjoy it without food - a really easy drinker this one!

Also grateful to have discovered The Good Wine Shop - this first order was perfect! And friendly too, with their cute Christmas postcard! Thank you!
