In the vineyards
The Syrah is planted on schist soils in a low yielding vineyard which produced only 2,5 tons per Hectare in 2021 adding deeply concentrated flavours to the wine. The Grenache and Cinsaut components are planted on red soils which is rich in iron. These parcels give the final blend lovely perfume and elegance.
In the cellar
The Syrah was 30% wholebunch fermented and aged in large 500 Litre barrels. The Grenache and Cinsaut were destemmed before fermentation and aged in small barriques. Due to the extremely low yields on all three vineyards, one pump over was done daily to capture the essence of the wines. The components were then blended after 10 months in oak. No enzymes or fining agents were used in the making of the wine.
Christian Eedes: Red and black berries, olive, dried herbs and white pepper on the nose while the palate is medium bodied with fresh acidity and crunchy tannins. Showing purity of fruit and good length, this has a ready drinkability about it. 93/100.
