Pyrenees Syrah 2021
The grapes for our 2021 Syrah were sourced from Shay's Flat located in the Pyrenees.
Shay’s Flat is produced on an east-facing ridge in the southern foothills. It appears as a natural amphitheater with red soils of schist, quartz, and rich clay. The vineyard features ten hectares of Shiraz in two parcels. The vineyard sits at an altitude of 350m in the Western Pyrenees Ranges and is organically farmed.
Picking the grapes early at 12.8 Baume from the coolest part of the site, we cold soaked in open vats for 5 days and lightly pressed the grapes in our hand basket press. This wine was aged in 2 year old French oak barrels for 18 months creating a soft, approachable and textured wine, with a medium red hue. The nose is savoury with dusty bitter dark chocolate and cherry pith and suggestions of spice and pepper on the palate.
