Smart Dog Syrah

£9.49

Lively & Juicy

Smart Dog Syrah is a full-flavoured, lively and juicy wine, with baskets of fruit and a finish to savour.

Winemaking Joao Ramos was looking for the perfect location to plant some Syrah vines, among all his traditional Portuguese varieties. When roaming with his dogs, one of them raced after a little critter, after burrowing deep down the dog started to dig. Low and behold, the perfect soil was revealed, leading to the name of this wine.

Alentejo is situation to the south of Portugal, producing some of the finest wines the country has to offer. Its climate makes it perfect for grape growing, and it doesn’t make a bad holiday destination either.

Smart Dog Syrah

 

Speak to any winemaker and you will find a tall tale and 'Smart Dog' is one that Joao Portugal Ramos loves to tell. Being an active man who is completely fixated on his vineyards, winery and wines (with the possible exceptions of food, family and friends) he frequently roams his estate in the Alentejo region of southern Portugal, accompanied by his dogs, in order to contemplate the problems of the day. On one occasion, the problem in hand was that he wished to plant Syrah vines to add to the many native Portuguese varieties that he already cultivated, but was not sure where to plant it. Close by, his dog started to dig a hole in pursuit of some hapless small beast and lo! Beneath the cleared topsoil was revealed a deep red sub soil, iron rich, and perfect for the Syrah grape. Always take such tales with a pinch of wine!
