The Francophile Syrah 2020 Can 250ml


“Red-wine lovers, this is your can!” – Jancis Robinson

“Best canned wines I have tasted recently were The Liberator… They look great too.” – Jancis Robinson

Pure, unadulterated and juicy Syrah in a can? Vive la révolution.

Wonderfully simple, easy to store and no corkscrew required. No pressure to open and finish a whole bottle, no chance of that dastardly cork taint and, being lighter and easier to recycle, much better for the environment than glass. And now you can get cans filled with liquid chosen by a bona fide Master of Wine.

As a panel taster for South African Wine Magazine, a contributor to the highly respected Platter’s South African Wines Guide and a certified Master of Wine, Richard Kelley is one of the most respected authorities on South African wine in the world. Over three decades in the industry, this Cape Crusader has made a lot of friends throughout that great winemaking nation. Every time he visits the Cape, he pops in to see his buddies and rummage through their cellars, uncovering great wines that don’t quite fit in the winery’s portfolio, are deemed too experimental or that they plan to simply fill into big blends. On discovering these gems, Richard – going by his alter ego Rick – ‘liberates’ them, bottles them and sells them under the small-batch label The Liberator.

The Francophile is an unoaked Syrah. Although proudly South African, it’s created in a very French style, reminiscent of a young Rhône red. Gorgeously fresh and brimming with juicy red and black fruit flavours, lily aromas and twist of black pepper. Perfect for a weekday treat, a rendezvous in the park, or adding a splash to dinner while leaving enough for a glass for you.
