Natalie's Score: 90/100

A blockbuster southern French red wine blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache grapes with lip-smacking juiciness on the palate. The Grenache component of the wine was aged for 1 year in 80% concrete tanks while the Syrah was matured in 500-litre demi-muids (large barrels). Purple plums and blueberry pie on the nose and palate of this robust, smooth, juicy French red wine. Pair with hamburgers and relish with salsa on the side.

Syrah Grenache food pairings: gourmet hamburgers, meat tacos, roast chicken.

Sexy and smooth, a delicious blend of 70% Syrah, 30% Grenache. Showing ripe dark berries- cassis and blackberries, with spicy notes, fleshy smoked meat and a hint of milk chocolate. Silky texture with great balance and finesse. A sensuous date wine.

Ripe strawberry aromas blended with the sweet floral smell of lilacs and violets, as well as cedar, cloves and hints of cigar box.

The tannins are medium and there is flavours of juicy blackberries, cinnamon, espresso and a long cocoa finish.

Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted March 22nd, 2018. Colour clear and dark ruby red. Thick legs. Aromas and flavours of, blackberry, cassis, cedar, raw chocolate. Tastes extra dry, full body, dark fruit, tannin plus, mouthwatering and a dark fruit tannic finish. Medium plus finish.
I like this wine it delivers a great flavour. I would enjoy a char grilled steak with it.
A first rate value wine that delivers. You can drink it young no need to wait.
For full bodied wine lovers.
Bastide Miraflors 2015 is a southern-France rich, robust and silky old vines 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache red wine blend. The Grenache wine was aged for one year in 80% concrete tanks while the Syrah was matured in 500-litre demi-muids (large barrels). Deep purple in the glass, on the palate the blend is blueberry, black raspberry, dark chocolate and meaty. Great price point. Drink now and for the next three years. - Community Wine Reviews
