Grape variety: Syrah 95%, Viognier 5%
This wine is a unique blend in Thailand between our estate grown Syrah and small percentage of Viognier. Syrah for this blend was picked from sixteen year-old blocks on a slope with darker soil and good drainage. The grapes were hand harvested in the cool mornings of February at 23-24 °Brix and sorted. Fully-ripened Viognier was co-fermented with the Syrah.
This wine is full bodies with a youthful nose of blackcurrant, rose petals, earth and distinctive black pepper. The palate shows arrays of dark cherries and lifted floral notes, vanilla and freshly crackes pepper with great acid backbone. Aged in second year French Oak Puncheons for fourteen months, the wine is ypung, ripe and fruit-forward with soft tannins. Balanced in body with juicy finish of vanilla and chocolate. It is pleasureable drinking on its own or with food.
This Syrah Viognier is crafted to be enjoyed with a few years of cellaring and will improve with age. Drink now-2026.
