Rhone Valley, France Grapes come from 95-year-old vines on the steep, granite slopes of the right bank of the Rhone at an elevation of 920 feet above sea level. All work in the vineyards is done manually and without the use of pesticides or irrigation, respecting the local environment.

Wine maker notes
Grapes are hand-harvested and de-stemmed. The grapes macerate for one month. Fermentation takes places in stainless steel tanks for a period of 10 days at an average temperature of 69F. Post fermentation maceration lasts a period of 12 days at a temperature of 84F. The wine is then aged for 22 months in oak barrels 1/3 in new, 2/3 in 1 to 3-year-old oak barrels. When ready for bottling, the wine is fined with egg whites and bottled unfiltered.

Technical notes
100% Syrah

Food pairing
Excellent with duck, steaks, lamb, hearty Italian dishes with red sauce, stews, and game. Pairs well with strong cheeses.
