2017 Twenty One
Honoring the twenty-first vintage from our Biodynamically certified Annadel Gap Vineyard and representative of our very best Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache, this is the debut of our proprietary Estate Red Blend. Twenty-One marks a milestone for our Winery and our collaboration with Philippe Melka. Unfiltered, with minimum intervention, Twenty-One shows layers of lavender, dried roses, white pepper and savory notes, the wine is full-bodied with fine, rounded tannins and finishes with great length and explosive perfume.

Each clone was hand-harvested individually at night. The fruit was hand-sorted and fermented, separated by clone. Six days cold soak, gentle punch downs 1-3 times daily, average 22 days on skins and gently basket pressed. Gravity fed to French oak barrels (42% new). Aged 19 months, then bottled unfiltered.
