Two thirds of the Syrah fruit for this particular bottling was sourced from our H-Ville vineyard site. The soils of this vineyard are very sandy with some loam and a bit of gravel. In these types of soils, the sand allows for increased water drainage, which stresses the vines as they compete for water. The stressing of the grape vine allows for riper, more complex fruit. The H-Ville vineyard Syrah provides the backbone and structure to this wine. The remaining fruit was sourced from our H-Block vineyard site. This particular site is much more densely planted and the fruit tends to bring the finesse that we are looking for in our estate Syrah. H-Block Syrah brings beautiful purple flower aromatics and delicate blue fruit notes to the wine.
