The grapes are harvested by hand when they have reached peak maturity, then de-stemmed and left to macerate in the traditional manner for 10 to 15 days in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. This allows the distinctive Syrah flavours to shine through, with prominent red fruits and spices, framed by silky, delicate tannins. The malolactic fermentation and maturation processses are conducted in stainless steel vats, preserving Syrah's fruity character.
Served at 18°C, it is the perfect accompaniment to grilled meats, spicy dishes and blue cheeses.
