Our Syrah shows umami in spades: a velvety structure with fine tannins, black pepper, and olive purÌ©e. We add a bit of Mourv̬dre and Viognier to bring out the grape‰Ûªs subtle floral aromas & earthy notes. Perfect for roast meat or venison.

At harvest, fruit is hand-sorted twice, lightly crushed, and cold soaked for nearly a week before the start of fermentation. This allows the flavours and colours contained within the skins to soak into the wine gently and naturally. The wine is oxygenated daily via remontage and d̩lestage before being racked into 225l French oak barrels at the end of primary fermentation. The wine remained in barrel during malolactic fermentation and for 18 months of maturation before bottling.

This Syrah reminds us of fresh black cherries, liquorice, and dark chocolate: a perfect match for rich flavours. The wine is smooth and balanced to delight the connoisseur and convert the newcomer. The oak is well-integrated and will age through 2020 or beyond. Some sedimentation may occur in bottle.
