100% Syrah

Winemaking
On arrival at the winery all grapes were first subjected to a whole cluster selection. This was followed by destemming (without crushing) and then an individual berry selection before being gravity fed to small open-top tanks. A 7 day cold soak (at 7ºC/45ºF) followed after which time the must was warmed and inoculated with selected yeasts and fermented during 10 to 15 days with temperatures peaking at 32ºC/90ºF. During fermentation the vats were hand-plunged three or four times daily in order to extract the ideal amount of tannin and colour. Following the completion of fermentation the must was subjected to an additional 14 days of post fermentation maceration (to give a total of 36 days total skin contact). The wine was then pressed off skins and put to 70% new French oak barrels for 14 months during which time it was racked and returned to barrel twice. The finished wine was then carefully aged for six months in our cellar prior to release.

Tasting Note
So intensely violet it almost appears black in the glass. On the nose a mixture of boysenberry and cassis give way to just a hint of leather and tar. In the mouth layers of black cherry and dark chocolate are backed up with fresh acidity and generous tannins leading to a long, elegant finish.

Serving Suggestions
A great partner to Boeuf Bourgignon or similar slow cooked dishes. Ideal for game. In cheeses the edam is the perfect paring.
