  • Age of Vines: 10 to 100 Years

    Yields: 25 hl/ha 3,000 bottles annually

    Pruning Method: Gobelet

    Soil: Schist

    Varietals: 100% Syrah—30 year-old vines, some of the fruit is purchased from neighboring growers

    Vinification Method: Grapes are hand-harvested and undergo a very long maceration at a low temperature—without destemming. The wine is fermented in wooden tanks and aged on fine lees in second-hand oak casks for eight months. The wine is bottled without filtration. The wine has a total SO2 of only 25mg/L.

    Tasting Note: Violets, bacon fat and black cherry all interplay on the nose. Deep black cherry and juicy plum flavors meshed with candied violets and cool strawberry flavors on the palate. The moderate tannins highlight the fruity components on the finish.

    Pairing: Ideal with squab, Cornish game hen, roasted chicken or roast pork, grilled beef or lamb.
