The story goes...

A New World spirit has been breathed into this range of single varietal wines that remain firmly rooted in their Languedoc homeland. Syrah and Sauvignon, the improbable confrontation of grape varieties and wine profiles, symbolise Domaine Gayda’s origins and the fusion of two worlds, Old and New.

Tasting notes

Its burlat red colour with purple highlights embodies depth and richness. The nose is strikingly fresh, with aromas of green pepper, peppermint, blackcurrant, blackberry and wild berries. On the palate, the wine is gourmand and crisp, with blackcurrant and liquorice dominating and enveloping the palate. The intense freshness brings a remarkable vivacity to the whole, offering an invigorating and dynamic mouthfeel. A few subtle touches of liquorice on the finish round off this tasting experience, bringing a slight sweetness.
