Amista 2018 Syrah

Amista 2018 Syrah

This is the wine you'll want with those hearty winter dishes or a crackling fire. The 2018 Morningsong Syrah starts with aromas of plush black cherry, molasses, a hint of chocolate buttercream frosting and some touches of black cardamom. The palate is warm and rich and has lingering fruit flavors, delicate tannins and a long finish. This is a great food pairing wine.

Production Notes
The Morningsong Vineyard Syrah was harvested first thing in the morning by hand. The grapes were sorted both in the vineyard and in the winery before being destemmed and left whole berry and put into an open top tank. The grapes were cold soaked for 5 days to extract the maximum amount of flavor, then inoculated and fermented on the skins for 12 days. After being gently pressed off the skins, the wine was moved to 25% new French oak and the remainder to neutral oak barrels where it completed malolactic fermentation. It was racked once in the 15 months before being bottled.
