The gravel soils, combined with the warm, sundrenched climate, make Gimblett Gravels Vineyard an ideal terroir for Syrah. Grapes boast concentrated fruit flavors and a distinct vibrancy expressed in the wine. Fruit is hand harvested and destemmed before undergoing fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine is matured in oak barriques for 16 months before bottling.
Ripe fresh cherry melds with floral honeysuckle and lavender notes and black pepper. The satin like texture gives way to fleshy, vibrant blueberry fruit. The palate finishes with some charcoal and flint to add mineral interest and complexity.
