Sy•rée [se-rey] n. derived from Syrah and “cuvée” (blend)
The grapes for our Syrée are selected from the hilltop sections of some of our most regarded vineyards: Adelaida Springs Ranch and Creston Valley. The vines from these higher terrain elevations, steeped in calcareous subsoils with ample sun exposure, produce naturally small and concentrated berries that exhibit structured tannins and balanced acidities. The resulting wines from these blocks feature expressive fruit flavors and a rich mouthfeel that underscore the aging potential for this unique Rhône-inspired blend of Syrah and Petite Sirah.
The lots were pumped over in small fermenters and kept on the skins for ten days to extract the appropriate amount of color and tannins without excess astringency. After being transferred to 100% French oak barrels, the selected lots were later blended for overall balance and structure and put back into barrels for an additional year of barrel aging. This limited selection wine is unfined and unfiltered to preserve its integrity.
Enjoy now through 2025.
