Made by top producer Cave de Tain exclusively for Tesco, this stunning northern Rhone red is genius in a bottle.
Seriously concentrated, this is made from the Syrah grape with layers of redcurrant and blackberry fruits.
One for slow-cooked stews or roasted red meats.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 5 years
Jancis Robinson - FT Magazine 08/12/2012
Of the 2007 vintage, Jancis Robinson said: “Quite a treat to find this pure, luscious northern Rhone Syrah you could already drink in so many branches of the supermarket. The Tain co-op has access to a large proportion of the firm Syrah grown on this famous hill in the northern Rhone. Dry finish but great fruit on the way there.”

The Cave de Tain does a good job of extracting the spice and pepper of the Syrah grape in most of its wines and this Hermitage is no exception, a fine red with a distinctive pepper and spice perfume and attractively juicy fresh fruit spliced with cracked pepper on the palate, albeit the faintest touch rustic for the great cru of Hermitage itself.
Founded in 1933, Cave de Tain are one of the most respected and well-run co-operatives in the Rhône . Their objective is to produce authentic wines which bear the full character of their individual vineyard sites.
Situated in the north of the Rhone Valley, by the town of Tain L'Hermtage the vineyards of Hermitage are sited on steep, sunny, south-facing slopes and protected from the northern winds.
