In the vineyard: Slavyantsi village, Oreshaka vineyard
In the Cellar: The grapes were hand-harvested, carefully sorted, and gently crushed in stainless-steel tanks for fermentation. Low-temperature maceration. After extended time on the skins to promote tannin evolution, a third of the wine was run off into French oak barriques. Aged for twelve months prior to blending.
TA: 5.5 g/l
Residual sugar: dry
In the glass: Lively with delicate freshness almost unbelievable for a Syrah. Beautifully balanced, reminiscent of ripe plum with vanilla lift, spices and tar. Red and dark fruits in the mouth supported by ultra-fine tannins. Superb minerality and earth notes echo in the long lively finish.
Recommended Cellaring: 2-4 years
