Amphora 2015 - Villa Symposia


Villa Symposia is a small estate in Languedoc created in 2003 on a great terroir with the advice of Stéphane Derenoncourt, well-known adviser to top Châteaux in Bordeaux. Conversion to organic farming and relentless, traditional work in the vines contributed to build a brillant reputation within a relatively short timeframe. Cuvée Amphora is a fresh and fruity medium-bodied red, made from a blend of Syrah and Cinsault. This is a nicely balanced, smooth wine with vibrant red fruit aromas and spices on the finish. A great wine to discover the Languedoc region!
