2018 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 co-fermented with our Viognier in stainless steel. We strive for balanced yet persistent expression of tannin in this wine without overextracting it. This wine then spends 18 months élevage in French oak barrels. This is a rich and complex wine that showcases
white pepper with hints of blueberry compote, and Herbs de Provence. Intense with bright acidity and persistent tannins, this wine wine will continue to open up and age beautifully.
