SKU: Syrah_Margerum_Estate_BTL

This is the fifth wine made from Margerum’s stunning hillside and organically farmed estate property overlooking the Santa Ynez Valley, with steep elevations and diverse low nutrient soils comprised of a combination of clay loam and limestone outcroppings on a limestone base. They planted a complex array of Syrah clones, some own-rooted and three blocks co-planted with Viognier [2%].  The five clones are: Estrella [1%], 470 [30%], Alban [30%], 7, [20%] and 877 [17%].

The Estate Syrah was matured for 10 months in a mixture of 13 old and new Ermitage barrels and was never racked until bottling.  54% of the grapes were fermented as whole-cluster

The aromas are fragrant wild dark red fruit mixed with Mediterranean nuances of black olive, thyme and purple flowers. Earth notes of leather and black pepper mischievously weave in the background.

The palate is rich, dense and full-bodied, loaded with dark berry fruits, dark chocolate and dried herbs, with concentrated, juicy mid palate with dark cola and delicious black fruit dominating. Complex and integrated tannins complete the framework. The density, texture and depth of this wine are a testament to the quality of the vineyard.
