WINEMAKING

Syrah is picked at moderate ripeness to retain elegance and natural acidity. Whole berries are cool fermented atop whole bunches (25%) at 20 to 22 oC resulting in a subtle aromatic lift and introducing a wilder spice element to the otherwise pure Syrah perfume. A cool climate, medium bodied and balanced Syrah.
