A long and gentle vintage weather pattern, slightly cooler than the long-term average. The fruit gained lovely perfumes and textures while maintaining a magnificent verve.
Syrah is picked at moderate ripeness to retain elegance. Cool fermentation of whole berries at 20 to 22 oC creates a partial carbonic maceration which introduces a spice element to the pure Syrah perfume. A cool climate, medium bodied and balanced Syrah.
