Amista 2013 Syrah

Amista 2013 Syrah

Our 2013 Syrah starts off with aromas of cassis, dark and intense blackberry, lavender, orange blossom and all-spice. The aromatics give way to beautiful and intense fruit on the front palate: wet, juicy black cherry, blackberry and boysenberry jam. The palate has silky but dusty tannins and a lingering finish. This wine is bright and incredibly food friendly. It will age for at least 5-8 years or more.

Vineyard Notes
If 2012 was thought to be the perfect vintage, then 2013 really blew our minds. The year started out with a dry winter, but high spring rains added to the water table just in time. The summer was hot, but even without any major heat spikes. Harvest came a bit early (or closer to normal) than the previous years.
Winemaker Notes
The Syrah came in ten days earlier than the previous year, due to a slightly smaller crop. We picked at daybreak by hand, so the grapes would remain nice and cold on their way to the winery. We destemmed but left the berries whole and put them into a closed top tank for a 3-day cold soak. After 3 days, we inoculated and fermented for 16 days on the skins. The wine then went to barrel, with a small amount of new oak, and aged for 15 months before being bottled unfiltered and unfined
