About the Wine
This cracking red wine from M. Chapoutier is produced in the Crozes-Hermitage area of the Rhône Valley. Available in 75cl bottles, imported by Hatch Mansfield. Petite Ruche Crozes-Hermitage is a delicious wine, made with Grenache/Garnacha, Cinsault and Shiraz/Syrah grapes. This cork closed wine is created with added sulphites.

Shee-rahz / See-rah
The same grape variety, often referred to as Syrah, Old World and Shiraz, New World. It produces deep concentrated wines, full in body, alcohol and tannin. Deep almost opaque purple colour, loads of black fruit and pepper flavours and aromas. When it develops, or is of high quality it often shows notes of leather, spice, smoke and mint.
