All SYLTBAR wines are time – honored with the value of a long fermentation. The grape has time to develop to the full ripeness. Other Brands like to skip the long fermentation process (time is money) and they have to use much more sugar to make the wine taste full. A set of actions has always guided our wine producer with maximum respect of health for human beings
Very Low Sulfite Wine
Sulfites are a natural by-product of the fermentation process that act as a preservative against certain bacteria. A short fermentation process doesn’t produce enough sulfites to preserve a wine for more than a few weeks, which is why added sulfites become necessary. Wine ranges from about 5ppm (5 parts per million) to about 250ppm/L. The legal limit in the US is 350ppm g/L. We are transparent, that is why you will find the filling date on our Mr and Mrs SYLTBAR bottles.
The majority of wines are not vegan or even vegetarian friendly. All wines are cloudy and contain microscopic molecules. Our wines stay in the tank long enough to self-stabilize with the slow sedimentation of these particles. 95% of the wines contain clarifiers like egg white, gelatin and fish bladder to clear out those particles. Time is so essential for a 100% natural produced wine.
Organic / Green Project
SYLTBAR wines are much more than simply Organic. The Green Project is a set of actions, behaviors and procedures that have been put in place to contribute to the environmental sustainability of our business, respecting the existing territorial balance. “Social responsibility” has always guided our wine producer with maximum respect for the communities in which the winery operates. 100% no Additives
I love red wine, but red wine usually doesn’t love me. It’s a common trigger for migraines for me. I tried this because of the low sulfites and I never got a headache and drank the whole bottle. The wine is really flavorful and smooth.
I love this wine, my taste buds pick up pepper and chocolate. But regardless, it’s great.
Enjoyed this smooth fragrant delightful tasting red with a steak dinner. Looking forward to purchasing another bottle! Another hit for Syltbar!
A full-bodied, delicious cab franc! A softer type of cabernet sauvignon - cashmere describes it perfectly.
Syltbar has done it again. This red wine is wonderful, rich and smooth, full bodied, and goes with so many different foods. What a treat!
I have been following a ketogenic diet for 2 years. The only time I would cheat, was with red wine. I now finally found the solution to enjoy wine and stay in ketosis! Nothing beats this wine with a beautiful charcuterie platter! It’s a beautiful wine regardless of what diet or lifestyle you were on.
Very delicious and full bodied
Cheers !! Delightful . Chilled better
Great wine - absolutely delicious! I served it at a dinner and everyone loved it - great with stone crabs!
Ottimo vino ad un prezzo popolare
Fruit forward, nice finish, a little spice but not too much. Opens quite nice! We ordered a bunch more so we do love it and love the low sugar. No headache from this clean wine!
This is outstanding, earthy pepper
Light and tangy blackberry fruits that call out for charcuterie or light meat dishes
You can taste the sunshine and how its ripened berries and fruit. A pleasure to drink.
Fruity, earthy, aromatic red. Intense color and aroma, wonderful tannings wit flavors of dark fruit and pepper. Medium body
Sweet, juicy and provocative as usual Cabernet Franc
The SYLTBAR Cashmere - Cabernet Franc might easily become one of my husband's and my favorite red wines. It is lush, yet smooth, a bit lighter than a Cabernet Sauvignon, absolutely delightful. We look forward to enjoying more in the future!
Love this wine, intense, fruity. Good with pasta and meat
It had to try this a second time. You have to open up the wine and decant it first before drinking. It tastes so much better than some of the cabernet frnacs we pay double or triple for. Paired with a great steak, you cannot go wrong.
Lovely Cab franc, more in a Loire style than Bordeaux. Young still and lovely strawberry fruit
