The Syrah lots were grown at two sites on the Black Sage Bench and at a vineyard on the Golden Mile, adjacent to the winery. The Viognier in the blend was grown on the Black Sage Bench. The Viognier was picked and crushed with each of the Syrah lots and they were co-fermented relatively hot (30ºC+). They were pressed just prior to alcoholic completion and were allowed to finish this in-tank. One lot has been aged for 9 months in a single large oak tank while the rest were racked into a mix of new through 3-year-old French and American barrels for malolactic fermentation and 9 months of aging. The final blend was assembled and bottled in late August 2008.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

  Best Books of the Year

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.
