Lavau Envyfol Syrah 2014 ~ Rhone, France
This is great……and here’s why!Challenge International du Vin ~ Silver
Curious Wines "Lovable charmer with oodles of raspberry and plum fruit spiced up with a little tapenade and wrapped up in soft, sweet tannins."
Made from 100% unoaked Syrah (Shiraz) grown in southern France.
Originally from Bordeaux, the Lavau family has been involved with winemaking for generations, and have had vineyards ranging from Bordeaux to Tunisia. In 1964 they were seduced by the richness and quality of the Provencal soil, and settled down to make wine in the Rhone Valley.
The cellars of Lavau are currently managed by Benoit and Frederic Lavau, who work in partnership with 350 different grape growers. Benoit is a frequent visitor to Singapore and Pop Up Wine events.
EnvyFol is a fable of luck. This fantastic label has been discovered – long ago forgotten – in a grandfather’s cupboard, where it had remained since 1967. The vision of Envyfol, producing an appetisingly insatiable wine indulging an urgent desire to enjoy it as intended.
Envyfol wines are made with the best grapes and the finest juice, making them approachable, whilst retaining the traditional refined aesthetic of French wine.
