Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
I love the beautiful cranberry color of this wine. The nose is full of black cherry, roasted strawberries and cream, toasted almonds and a hint of ruby red grapefruit zest. The front palate is bright and filled with berry notes. The finish has great acidity and balance with a slight savory character that makes it deliciously food friendly. The finish is beautiful and lingering.
Vineyard Notes
2020 was a vintage to remember. From early on in 2020, it was quite warm. Bud break and set happened very smoothly and the crop size was considerably smaller after large vintages the two previous years. In the vineyard, all our varietals were concentrated in yields and delicious in flavor.
Production Notes
100% Syrah, created using the Méthode Champenoise, which is the traditional method of making Champagne and other sparkling wines.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were hand harvested and destemmed, then crushed. They were allowed skin contact for 10 hours to get the beautiful pink color. The grapes were then pressed to a stainless-steel tank, where they were fermented at 56 degrees over 16 days. After fermentation and settling, the wine was bottled with a small amount of yeast and sugar to induce secondary fermentation. This process took about one year. After this, the bottles were riddled to bring the lees and sediment to the neck of the bottle. The necks were then frozen, and the lees were disgorged from the bottles. Finally, the bottles were topped up, and the final corks and wire hoods were put into place.
