What about the grapes? 100% Syrah
And the vineyards (terroir): South-Westerly facing slopes ranging in altitude from 230-250m above sea level on decomposed granite soils. The vines are trellised on a seven-wire hedge system and we yield approximately eight tons per hectare.
How was it made: The grapes were harvested at just over 23 Balling to capture the pepper spice that typifies the varietal. The fermentation temperature peaked at 28°C with regular pump-overs to ensure even extraction and a 30% portion was fermented with 25% whole bunches. The wine was matured for 12 months in 500l French oak barrels, with 20% new oak.
Should this wine age / mature: Can be enjoyed young but will age well for 5 to 10 years.
