Winemaker Notes
Record breaking summer heat afforded this Syrah block deep black fruit flavours and full ripening of tannins. After long cold soak, fermented in a small stainless tank and given 22 days skin contact. Blending with 7.4% Viognier stabilized the anthocyanins and lifted the floral highlights. Barrel maturation of nine months in new (26%) and used French oak barrels structured and softened the tannins.
Food Pairing Notes
Grilled lamb, merguez sausage, and rich cheese
