Syrah – Keczan Vineyard


Vintage 2019


Winemaking Notes:

The 2019 Vintage was a short but sweet harvest.  It was a cool spring and the cold weather rolled in at the being of November.  We hand-picked and hand-sorted this fruit on October 29, 2019.  The grapes were destemmed and left to cold soak on skins before fermentation started spontaneously 5 days after harvest.  During fermentation, we did two punch-downs by hand every day until ferment had finished.  We pressed off skins and filled 5 oak barrels, one new French, one new American and three old neutral barrel, where this wine aged for 20 months before being bottled on August 18, 2021.

Tasting Notes:

From the 2019 vintage this long awaited Syrah provides an intense nose of black cherry, raspberry, smoke, leather, peppercorns, violets raspberry and vanilla. The palate matches the nose with developing notes of clove, nutmeg, gravel, crushed stone, cigar leaf and a mix of all the peppercorns available! This wine reminds me of sitting in a wood paneled room with leather winged back chairs in front of a large hearth fire. There is a lingering scent of cigar smoke and dried raspberries and peppercorns in the background. A feeling of warmth, comfort and indulgence all around. This wine is best enjoyed with a peppercorn steak, lamb shank and braised beef. This wine will last for 7 to 10 years but is tasting fantastic now with minimum of an hour of decanting. This wine opens tremendously with air… enjoy!
