The Syrah* 2013 is made from Shiraz grapes and is the perfect example of how fruit from two different terroirs can harmonize to create a beautiful wine, showcasing the best of both regions. This appealing Shiraz is an elegant wine with supple fruit and spice balance prompting the name change to Syrah. The grapes were picked by hand, the selected blocks fermented separately and only blended after maturation.
Note: Syrah is the French word for Shiraz.
