A selection of 20-40 year old Syrah vines from hillside terraces on muscovite-rich granite soils, Cavanos is the ancient name for the village of Chavanay. The grapes are hand- picked; and then sorted, crushed and partially destemmed in the cellar. Fermented in open top, temperature-controlled vats for about 3 weeks, with regular cap-punching and pumping-over. Primary fermentation is in vats with native yeasts and malolactic fermentation in barrels followed by an additional 16 months in barrel.

Cavanos features deep, dense aromas of sweet brambly fruit framed by a hint of classic Syrah smokiness. Juicy well balanced palate with velvety tannins and excellent length.

  • Deep ruby
  • Complex and greddy nose. Mature aroma of red fruits with a bit of graphite
  • Well balanced mouth, fleshy and velvety tannins offer a lovely length with spices freshness.
