The Syrah for this wine came from one vineyard in the sandy, well-composted soils high on the Black Sage Bench. The Viognier was grown on the Golden Mile, adjacent to the winery. The grapes were harvested in late October, and both Syrah and Viognier were crushed cold to a 6,000 litre oak tank. They endured a 2-week cold soak followed by a fermentation which spiked at 32ºC – hot! The wine was pressed at dryness and then allowed to complete malolactic fermentation and age in a mix of new and old French (Vosges and Centre of France) and Hungarian barrels. To maintain the pure fruit character, the wine was racked from barrels after only 10 months of aging, and bottled.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
