Tasting Notes

Syrah has the precursors to aromatic complexity that only Pinot Noir can surpass. This is a textbook example, with the volume set to 10. Black pepper, smoked meat, horse-sweat, olives, lavender, fennel, black raspberry all fight for the spotlight. On the palate, the wine is a balance between juicy and savoury. That black and green peppercorn shine through, and finish with fruit and barnyard tones. A haunting wine that will develop for years to come. Anything lamb, on polenta.

Whole clusters were thrown into concrete vats by hand, and these were left untouched for 10 days. We did pump overs twice a day for 2 weeks. We raised the temperature to 30ଂC for structure during fermentation. After 24 days, we racked off the free-run juice into concrete tanks. The RAW Syrah is only free-run, no pressing. Maturation was 10 months in a concrete Diamonte tank. The wine was fined, but not filtered, and sulphur was only added before bottling.
