2020 Domaines Paul Mas Que Sera Sirah Shiraz
Domaines Paul Mas was founded in 1892. The current owner is Jean-Claude Mas and he is without doubt the pioneer of the revival of the Languedoc as a region for quality wines. Jean-Claude describes his wines as 'Le Luxe Rural', rural luxury. He has given the Languedoc 'new world' allure with international grape varieties. And with his fashionable wines from local grapes, he has made the local character of the Languedoc hip again among wine lovers. Hubrecht Duijker rightly calls Jean-Claude Mas a 'wine wizard' and at Grandcruwijnen we are the only company in the Netherlands to also carry the high-end Grandcrus of Paul Mas.
The Paul Mas Que Sera Sirah is a hymn to the Syrah from the Languedoc. This wine is blended from Shiraz grapes from three different regions (Nicole Estate in Montagnac, the foothills of the Montagne Noire and the Aude Upper Valley). This 100% Syrah comes from vineyards between 28 and 45 years old with a sea view, so the sea breeze ensures a healthy vineyard. Harvesting is done at night to prevent premature fermentation. The fermentation is carried out for a maximum of 5 days at 30°C at a controlled temperature of 25°C. After fermentation, the maceration lasts for 30 days at a maximum of 25°C with a daily pumping over. After maceration, the wine is pressed with a pneumatic press. The press wine is partially mixed with free-flowing juice. After malolactic fermentation, 30% of the wine is placed in 225 liter American oak barrels.
In the glass, the Que Sera Sirah is garnet red with violet reflections. In the nose, this syrah is first spicy with a balsamic scent, then the aromas of cassis, tobacco and violet and a little charcoal. In the mouth the wine is well balanced with rich and supple tannins. Aromas of ripe and floral fruit with a sweet and spicy aftertaste.
Serve this tasty and pleasant wine at 17 ° C . Perfect to enjoy as a stand-alone glass and is a great accompaniment to grilled red meat, steak, strong or milder cheeses. This Que Sera Sirah can age perfectly for the next 10 years without any problems.
