Syrah for this wine was picked from nine year-old blocks of Syrah vines on a slope with darker soil and good drainage. The grapes were hand harvested in the cool mornings of February at 23-25°Brix and hand sorted.
This wine is full bodied and robust. It shows arrays of red berries, plum, dried fruits and freshly cracked pepper. Round, with ripe and rich fruity flavor of dates and spices, it is mouth-fillingwith spicy tannins, yet balanced body with long lingering finish of vanilla and mocha. It is pleasurable drinking on its own or with food.
Heritage Syrah is crafted to be enjoyed with a few years of cellaring and will improve with age. Drink now-2018.
