2011 Altitude Syrah
The Syrah grapes are grown on a sloping hillside on our Fair Play Farms Vineyard. The grapes are picked in a series of three small lots and fermented in small stainless steel open top fermenters. A small amount of Viognier is co-fermented to add complexity and tannin. The final blend is a selection of our best lots, aged in 35% New French Oak for 18 months. The result is this dark, rich Syrah.
