Syrah Blanc de Noir Vintage 2022
Dry white wine from the red grape variety Syrah, Blanc de Noir , 0.75 l, 12% alc., limited edition 886 bottles
This marvellous wine, the colour of pearls, was made from the Syrah variety grown at row lot 174 of the Queen’s Winery vineyard.
In essence it is a Blanc de Noir made from Syrah. I am not sure if anybody ever has made an attempt to produce Blanc de Noir from Syrah in Bulgaria, and only my family and I know, what it has cost me to present the end result as such, and what I have gone through after it had been rejected because of the subtle rose tones and the respective failure to achieve pure whiteness.
The above developments motivated me to the extreme and the 2021 vintage can now shine in a uniquely pale hue for the Syrah red variety. Luckily, in the epoch of ubiquitous internet connection, each of us has the possibility to go online and compare the color variations across Australia, New Zealand, France and South Africa. Would someone else maybe do better than myself? Probably Yes.
Yet, I would like to start a discussion on whether there is a RIGHT colour for Blanc de Noir. In the meantime, I hope that you will find delight in the taste of my “Chameleon”.
How to serve “The Little Chameleon”?
Its provocative, innovative taste and method of vinification require audacity and culinary imagination to select an adequate food companion. It would enjoy the company of dishes rich in taste, tenderness and aroma. It poses an unexpected challenge to the lovers of simple vegetarian dishes. It is a perfect match to fish, seafood, light summer salads, cheese platters, tender cuts, grilled vegetables in dressing and white truffle. Its only shortcoming is that it awakens the taste buds and does not get along well with limitations, dieting and calorie counts.
“The Little Chameleon” is an excellent gift idea for an innovative mind, an eccentric with time on their side, the holder of the “game-changing card”, who eventually will rise as the winner and set the new rules. By giving them this bottle of unusual wine, without drawing too much attention or making too much noise, without a conspicuous gesture, you say:
“I know that YOU are special. I believe in you. We will endure together until the day of your victory.”
