Beaumont Dangerfield Syrah 2014

Good colour, spicy fruit and pepper on the nose and flavours of berry fruit with fine ripe tannins on the finish make this a full but elegant wine.

Spicy red meat – pulled pork or roasted lamb go very well with this wine.

This Syrah gets its name from a character in one of Raoul Beaumont’s favourite novels The Ginger Man written by JP Donleavy. When Sebastian was born Jayne and Raoul tried to use it as a middle name for him. Unfortunately the grandparents revolted and vetoed the decision. Finally a wine has received the honour.
