Domaine Salel & Renaud 'Etèrna' Dureza 2020 (Ardèche, France)
In the Ardèche region, on the Western side of the Rhône valley, Elise Renaud and Benoit Salel have been patiently cultivating lesser-known ancestral grapes, including this Dureza, which, along with Mondeuse Blanche, is one of the parents of Syrah!
Even with its filial link, this expresses more like a Syrah from the Northern Rhône. It shows the characteristic spice and ample bright fruit that elevate a subtle earthiness, illuminating the palate. This wine is both an expression of reverence for our forebears, and a history lesson in a glass!
Food Ideas: Pizza with pesto sauce, onion rings, venison meatloaf with homemade ketchup, charred mackerel with hot peppers
