Meldville Barrel Select Syrah 2018

Shipping calculated at checkout.

Meldville comes from the name of Derek Barnett’s childhood home back in Swinford, England. In essence, it harkens back to his family’s history and gives a sense that the place where you sink your roots matters. After thirty years of winemaking and spearheading the natural wine movement, this personal project has a bit of cult-like status, and for a good reason.

As the name suggests, the Barrel Select series is his best-of-the-best wine that has seen time in barrel. In the case of this hard-to-grow Syrah, its intense boysenberry and dark chocolate flavors seem to be enveloped in burning cedar in a campfire.

Get this wine if you plan to have a casual weekend BBQ with friends because of its approachable likeability and its ability to pair with essentially any protein cooked over an open flame.
