Vinification: The grapes were handpicked during the second and third weeks of May and carefully transported to the winery. They were destemmed, lightly crushed and deposited into stainless steel tanks for fermentation. The must was inoculated with selected yeasts and allowed to ferment at 28 30 degrees C (82 86 degrees F) with regular pumpovers that ranged from 1.5 times the volume in the beginning to half volume at the end. Upon completion of the alcoholic fermentation, the wine remained on its skins for another week to develop additional structure and character. The wine was then separated from the skins, the skins pressed, and the press wine was reserved separately. The free-run wine was aged in oak barrels for 9 months and then blended 50 50% with the remaining wine that had been held in stainless steel tanks. The finished wine was cold stabilized, filtered, and bottled.

Tasting Note: Wrapped up in an intense and dazzling ruby purple, this syrah shows a lot of character: Bilberries, redcurrant and wild plums melted and spicy flower notes. The set gets deeper then adding earthy and stony tones, game with pink pepper more soft spices and vanilla from the barrels. Fruit ripeness and freshness move harmoniously through a juicy, crunchy texture where the youth still speaks loud. The still firms tannins build a deep weave that will keep backing up through years this audacious profile that concludes for now with a tactile presentation sealed with slightly candied wild berries, aromatic herbs and floral hints.

Best Enjoyed: Best enjoyed within six years

Winemaker: Jose Pablo Martin
