Grape variety: Syrah
The Syrah grapes for this wine were hand selected from three oldest blocks of lower yielding vines on a slope with red clay and good drainage. The grapes were hand harvested in the cool mornings of February at 24-25°Brix and hand sorted which resulted in concentrated grapes, with full flavors and tannins.
The Syrah was vinified with a long maceration period to get the full flavor and complexity. The Orient was aged in 100% new French and American oak barrels for twelve months for well-structured tannins and smooth palate. This Syrah is full-bodied, concentrated and elegant with layers of blueberries, plum, clove and spices. The palate shows arrays of dark cherries, sweet plums and black currant with complex, dry and generous mouthfeel with rich fruit and elegant tannins. Held together by tight acidity and the long, sweet and spicy hints of cigar box and Szechuan pepper. It is robust with integrated vanilla oak, powerful tannins with smooth, silky and long finish.
The velvety tannins make this wine pleasurable drinking on its own or with food. This Syrah is crafted to be enjoyed with a few years of cellaring and will improve with age. Drink now – 2020
