VINIFICATION

Both the Syrah and Merlot grapes were harvested by hand in March. In order to extract color and aromas the must underwent skin contact at low temperatures prior to alcoholic fermentation. The must is then fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at temperatures ranging between 24° to 26°C during a seven-day period. The Syrah and Merlot wines were fermented separately and then blended together. Prior to bottling, the blend is stabilized and filtered.


NOTES FROM OUR WINEMAKER

Our Syrah/Merlot has an intense red-violet color. The wine features aromas of ripe red fruit, hints of apricot jam and spices. Its tannins are soft and velvety.
