Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varietal

Syrah 100%

Aroma

The nose is lifted and complex with an array of berry fruit aromas and notes of spice and forest floor undergrowth.

Palate

The palate is medium bodied and surprisingly plush with a core of ripe berry fruit flavours. The wine is savoury and precisely structured, finishing with bright acidity.

Vineyard

Saint Joseph, ambitiously expanded northern Rhône west bank appellation producing mainly red wines from the Syrah grape but also some full-bodied fry whites fro the Marsanne and Rousanne.

Near the village of Tournon a series of deep terraces, ‘Les Marches’ (The Steps), rise above the Rhone river directly facing Hermitage. The steep elevation and granite soils result in profound and long lived wines.

Winemaking Note

Traditionally made with fruit completely de-stemmed before a long cool fermentation in small open vats, pumped over by hand daily. One half of the blend is matured in barrel with minimal stirring for six months. Bottled with minimal sulphur addition and without fining or filtration.
