The 2012 vintage of our Monopole Soul Syrah is exclusively sourced from the ripe fruit of KNW’s Grand Superior (Monopole) Nagyfai and Nyilasmár terroirs. The Nyilasmár vineyard has a thin, stony, and tuff based soil, which faces southward and results in wines that are spicey and have a full body; the Nagyfai vineyard contains rocky brown forest soil, which adds rich and complex flavors to our wines. Our Syrah is a brilliant example of the great vintage of 2012. This wine shows characteristics of ripe black cherries and earthy notes, with secondary flavours, such as plum, sweet tobacco, and leather, enhancing its character. This deep red wine has silky tannins and a nice long finish. Enjoy it on its own our with a number of dishes, as it is a very versatile and stunning wine.
This wine received the following awards:
Grand gold medal at the 2016 Concours Mondial de Bruxelles
Prestige Reserve medal at the 2016 Prestige Reserve
