Evangelo is a blend of the red grape Syrah and the white Viognier.
Fermentation is induced simultaneously for both varieties in 40 hectolitre Burgundian oak tanks. One of the benefits of adding Viognier is the process of co-pigmentation, which stabilises the colouring of red wine. In addition to its softening qualities, it also adds a stabilising agent and enhanced aroma to the wine. After malolactic fermentation in the same tanks, the wine is aged in French oak barrels.
This is an elegant wine combining intense varietal aromas with the enhanced taste of aged wines.
To be served at 16–18 °C.
Game birds, poultry in red wine sauces. A nice wine around the BBQ, particularly with grilled chicken and pork.
