The most recent addition to Montemaggiore's portfolio of Syrahs and Rhône-inspired wines is Syrafina. With this style of wine, a splash of Viognier (3%) lifts and enhances the aromas of the Syrah (97%). Although Syrafina was first introduced to Wine Club members, we're releasing it to the public for the first time.
