Description

The wine is called The Dalmatian on account of the minimal portions of the Viognier cultivar used in the blend. The Viognier grape is reported as having its origins from the Dalmatian Coast. (Croatia) The wine was inoculated with Rhône yeast and fermented for 19 days. After fermentation the wine was matured for 19 months in 20% new small French oak barrels. In the glass the wine is dark ruby in colour with a subtle nose of dark berries and a whiff of violets. Luscious blackberry notes and hints of spice come through on the palate supported by subtle French oak integration. The Syrah is well-rounded and finely balanced with a smooth tannin structure. Recommend decanting 2 hours before serving, if drinking now. Cellaring potential – 2031 No fining or filtration
