2017 Single Acre Syrah
Our lower elevation section 45.3 is warmer than most others on our site and ideally suited for ripening this warmer climate variety. Planted in 2008, our Syrah is always some of the last fruit that we pick, allowing it to ripen and achieve varietal typicity fully.
This wine is fermented in stainless steel. We strive for balanced yet persistent expression of tannin in this wine without over-extracting it. This wine then spends 18 months élevage in barrel.
This rich wine showcases blueberry, white pepper, and szechaun spices with hints of smoke and leather. Intense with bright acidity, this wine will continue to open up and age beautifully.
