2020 Syrah


This wine was made from grapes grown on the
stony and sandy terrace of the vineyard. The grapes
were cold soaked for around 5 days and then wild
fermented. A small portion of Viognier skins were
used in the ferment to add complexity and an
aromatic lift. The wine was then pressed and racked
to French oak barriques where it was aged for 12
months. The final blend has a 25% new oak
component and 25% one year old.
pH 3.56
TA 6.2 g/L
Alcohol 12.5%
Bright bramble fruit aromas, followed by smokey
and gamey notes with aromatic peppery spice, this
wine offers wonderful complexity. The palate is
sweet fruited with soft fine tannin and a juicy
acidity which gives beautiful freshness and a long
flavoursome finish.
