Winemaking:

First selection is performed on the vineyard and only good full mature grapes are hand-picked, then carefully selected again on sorting tables. The philosophy is to ferment only good quality of grapes. The tanks are filled by gravity without crush the grapes. Cold maceration of whole berries is performed from 5 to 8 days at 12 - 14 ºC to achieve desire colour and fruit extraction . Alcohol fermentation with addition of selected yeast strains is controlled at 26-28 ºC during 8-10 days, in order to reach 3-4 g/l residual sugar. The regularly pump over and pigeage are done in order to conduct slowly extraction from grapes substances and  achieve  balance in wine.The hot maceration 28- 30 ⁰C with marcs followed  from  10 to 15 days in concrete tanks 10 m³-thermoregulated. Malolactic fermentation continues in tanks and oak barrels, then ageing at least 18 months in oak barrels.

Taste:

 

The wine has deep and dense ruby colour. The perfect nose of blackberries and raspberries combines with the sense of fruits, skin, butter and cocoa. The taste is very well balanced. Full-bodied, fresh and juicy, this wine reveals powerful structure and balanced tannins. Syrah 2013 conquers with its harmony and strong potential
