The growing conditions on the Wahluke Slope produce a Syrah that is spicy, yet rich and complex with dark fruit flavors and aromas, an excellent expression of varietal character.

Production notes

Pick decisions are based equally on grape juice chemistry (Brix/pH/TA), as well as flavor and physical maturity of the grapes. Harvested early in the morning, the hand-picked grapes are promptly delivered to the winery for immediate processing. Whole-cluster sorted to remove any material other than grapes (MOG), before being destemmed and lightly crushed into 1-ton fermenters. The must is allowed to rest for 24 hours before inoculation with a selected yeast strain. The must is gently punched-down twice daily to ensure proper phenolic extraction. When fermentation is nearly complete the free-run wine is pumped directly into a combination of French and American oak barrels (225L).  Barrel aged 22 months, followed by another year in bottle before release.
