Relentless 2017 - Shafer Vineyards
More information

Shafer Vineyards Relentless is an expressive California red wine from Syrah (90%) and Petit Sirah (10%) grape varieties.
Translated, Relentless means "relentless." This wine is therefore dedicated to the relentless pursuit of perfection of the winemaker Elias Fernandez. 

The glass shows an almost dark violet colour. The bouquet delights with aromas of dark noble plums and dried figs. This is accompanied by hints of freshly ground pepper, black truffle and some smoke. The palate is pampered by a silky texture and a wonderfully balanced, full-bodied body. The tannins are perfectly integrated into this red wine. The final convinces length and multi-layered fruit nuances. 

Vinification of the Shafer Relentless

The harvest for this red wine takes place exclusively by hand. The grapes are carefully selected in the wine cellar before fermenting the mash in stainless steel tanks. After the fermentation process, this wine is aged for 30 months in French oak barriques (Allier and Troncais). 

Food recommendation for the Relentless by Shafer

This dry red wine from California is the perfect accompaniment to cold appetizers - especially  carpaccio - grilled vegetables or even spicy goulash stews.
