Bancroft Rhône Vintage Report 2013: "Syrah steals the show"

2013 was an excellent year for Syrah in the Rhône Valley and a vintage of generally very low yields for the older Grenache vines. The quality is overall showing itself as high particularly in the Northern Rhône, and the yields are very low both in the North and South, yet the prices look mainly unchanged since the last year. We maintain that the Rhône valley is still one of the few wine regions offering continued, superb value for money.  The 2013 Rhône wines offer a perfect hunting ground for everyday drinking wines as well as some serious regional superstars. Most of the wines featured in this offer will be on show at the Bancroft Fine Wine December tasting on the 3rd of December. We strongly encourage you to come and taste them with us then.
