Description 

Tranche Syrah
A lifted floral nose of violet and black plum, exhibiting dark fragrant aromas of licorice, tar, and a hint of meaty reduction. The wine is fresh and focused on the palate, with ripe fig flavors, roasted coffee and sun-dried black olive. Mouth-coating tannins create a velvety texture, and build in intensity without overshadowing the purity of the fruit. A truly classic example of Syrah.


Winemaker Notes

The Tranche Estate Syrah is harvested from exceptional blocks within our Blue Mountain Estate Vineyard. The cooler growing season produced intensely aromatic wines with deep color and a purity of bright fruit flavors. Syrah blocks came to the winery in late October and were hand-sorted into two-ton, open-top fermenters. Individual lots were basket pressed at dryness and filled into new and used French oak puncheons and barriques for period of 28 months. The finished blend was racked and then bottled, and received a further 12 months of bottle maturation prior to release.
