Barefoot Sauvignon Blanc

NV / 750 ml.

Item #: 5866

OT8989 pts. - The Tasting Panel (Anthony Dias Blue) - June 30, 2011
Fresh and clean with racy acidity and bright citrus; lively and balanced; nervy and long.
WE8787 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2012
Year after year, Barefoot does a great job with Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is dry, mouthwateringly crisp in acidity, and appealing in citrus, tropical fruit and gooseberry flavors.

Barefoot Pinot Grigio

NV / 750 ml.

Item #: 39152

BTI8989 pts. - Beverage Testing Institute - March 15, 2010
Aromas of dried jasmine, bergamot cookie, and peach sorbet are attractive and follow through on a silky entry to a dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body with very good balance and acidity and a persistent, chalk, lemongrass, and white nut accented fade. A tasty crowd pleaser.
WE8585 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2013
The Pinot Grigio brings its usual green apple, lemon curd, peach and mineral flavors to this zesty sparkling wine. It straddles the delicate border between dry and off-dry, and is easy to drink with almost anything.

WE8585 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2011
Kudos to Gallo for letting people know this wine is sweet. That avoids a lot of confusion. The honey, tangerine and peach flavors are balanced with lots of zesty acidity. Delightful, and a great bargain.

WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2024
This wine is rich, opulent with aromas of ripe green apple, peach, mulled spice, toasty vanilla cream and orange zest on the nose. The flavors on the palate are yellow apple, allspice and white grapefruit that transform into orange sherbet, mineral and a long, silky finish. Pair with weekday meals. (Tonya Pitts)

SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Apr 30, 2007
A delicate, well-balanced Prosecco, showing a good blend of baked apple, sour lemon and grapefruit, with a lightly creamy mineral texture on the palate. Medium froth, with some body and a pleasant lemon and mineral finish. Drink now.

Fresh citrus with hints of honey and white flowers on the nose; soft, light and delicate; delicious.
WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - August 1, 2013
Scents of dried grasses and sweet apples carry through this Prosecco. It lasts on nutty flavors, pleasantly balanced for sipping on the beach.

Widely available, this easy Prosecco offers fresh aromas of citrus, stone fruit and honey. It’s elegantly packaged with a light blue label that would look gorgeous at a lunchtime table set by the pool.

Buy Syrah/Shiraz Red Wine

Syrah (or Shiraz) is a dark-skinned red wine grape variety that makes powerful, flavorful red wines. Syrah-based wines are characterized by their dense, deep purple-red color, dark fruit and spice flavors, and bold tannin structure. Originally from the Rh么ne region of France, it is now planted worldwide, most notably in Australia, where it is known as Shiraz. 

What does Syrah taste like?

Syrah red wines offer flavors of blackberry, black currant, pepper, and spices that produce savory, smokey, or meaty flavors. The best examples are rich and concentrated, with velvety tannins.

The flavor profiles vary based on where the grape is grown. Cooler climates lend black pepper spice and floral notes, while hot regions bring jammier fruit. Australian Shiraz leans towards ripe black fruit with chocolate and vanilla from oak aging. Rh么ne Syrah is more savory with olive, earth, and game characteristics.

Is Syrah wine sweet or dry?

Syrah wines are dry, with barely detectable residual sugar. The fruit flavors may taste jammy, but the wines will finish dry rather than sweet. Any sweetness is a result of the ripeness of the grapes, not residual sugar.

Is Petite Sirah the same as Syrah?

Petite Sirah is a distinct variety and not the same as Syrah, which is sometimes called Petite Syrah. Petite Sirah produces dark, tannic wines with black fruit and pepper notes, but it is more commonly used for blending rather than varietal bottling.

Where is Syrah wine produced?

The Rh么ne Valley region of France is Syrah's historic home, particularly the North Rh么ne appellations of Hermitage, C么te-R么tie and Cornas.

Today, it is grown worldwide in regions with warm climates. Major regions include Australia, California, Washington State, and South Africa. It is also grown in Italy, Argentina, Chile, and New Zealand, among other countries.

Food pairings for Syrah wine

Syrah's savory, robust flavors pair well with flavorful meat dishes featuring beef, lamb, venison, or pork. Grilled meats are a go-to pairing. Braised short ribs, meaty stews, and sausages also match Syrah's hearty profile well.

For vegetarians, meaty mushrooms and umami-rich foods like caramelized onions and aged cheese provide compatible flavors. Herb-crusted vegetables, eggplant parmesan, and bean-based dishes also complement Syrah's layers of flavor.

How should Syrah and Shiraz be served?

Syrah should be served moderately cool at around 60鈥65掳F (15鈥18掳C) to allow its aromas and flavors to open up. Cooler than this can make the wine taste dull and muted. Warmer temperatures foreground the alcohol, resulting in a boozy and unbalanced experience.

Because of its high tannin and acidity, Syrah/Shiraz does well with a bit of aeration. Decanting for 30鈥60 minutes allows the wine to breathe and soften, helping smooth out bitter tannins and enhancing the fruit and savoriness.

Grapes, Wine and Wine Glass

Alternatives to Syrah

For those who enjoy the bold style of Syrah, alternatives to try include:

  • Malbec - A dark, tannic red with similar notes of black fruit and pepper, though with a smoother, plumper texture.
  • Zinfandel - Known for jammy blackberry and spice, California Zinfandel matches the ripe fruit intensity of Syrah.
  • Cabernet Sauvignon - The king of bold reds, Cabernet has weight and structure similar to Syrah, albeit with more pronounced tannins. Cabernet's flavor is marked by blackcurrant and herbal notes rather than Syrah's black fruit and meatiness.
  • Chianti Classico - The Italian Sangiovese grape has herbal, cherry flavors akin to Syrah's black fruit profile, with additional tobacco notes.

While none replicate Syrah exactly, these varieties express a similar sensibility of robust tannins, dark fruit, and savory complexity in their own unique way.
