Syrah

Vintage

  • 2015
    • Winemaker's comments:

      Deep and intense ruby-red color with violet hues. The complex bouquet combines black olives, fresh black fruits like black currant, some spices and minerality. The fresh palate is elegant and concentrated with tremendous balance, and a long, pleasing finish.

    • Vinification:

      The grapes (not crushed) were cold macerated for 5 days prior to fermentation, then inoculated with selected yeasts. The temperature was gradually raised to allow fermentation to begin, but remained below 28ºC (82ºF) throughout the entire process. Pumpovers were controlled by regular tastings; they were most intense during the early stages of fermentation (including 2 daily delestages before 1050 of density) and tapered off toward the end. An extended post-fermentation maceration allowed the wine to develop greater sweetness and elegance on the palate.

    • Potential aging:

      5 – 7 years.

    • Technicals details:

      • Alcohol : 14.5 % v/v
