    A young and energetic syrah, produced with native yeast fermentation, no added sulfur, and no fining or filtering. 

    "A wonderful vintage for this vital, energetic Syrah, that seems to change its incarnation with each passing year. Made with the usual Mazel technique of whole-bunch carbonic maceration to give the wine a dialled-back tannic structure and plenty of vivid fruit to the fore. Unlike the older vintage of Larmande we also carry, this wine is left to slowly ferment in tank only, no barrel-ageing, so a certain freshness prevails. There are tart black berries and salty black olive; the acidity carrying a mouthwatering lick of balsamic. The 2018, whilst still displaying the typical Mazel rusticity, definitely has a certain charm and elegance; the tannins slightly soften and the wine itself more open."
