All the grapes for this Syrah were sourced exclusively from the Narmata Bench.
This Syrah was co-fermented with Viognier (6-7%), which accounts for its deep colour and floral hints on the nose. This wine was feremented in small lots, of approximately 1 ton each and was cold soaked for 5 days, before fermentation was begun. The wine was barrel aged for 10 months, in mostly French oak, with a small percentage of American oak, for added complexity.
