Description

This Syrah is bold and well-structured with plenty of meaty red fruits and black pepper spice. The palate has plenty of firm tannins with plenty more red fruits along with a hint of mushroom and herbal characters that round out the long finish. 13.5%ABV. This Syrah comes from the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, the vineyards here sit along the Van Duzer corridor in the Willamette Valley. This area provides perfect airflow to temper the vines throughout the growing season while intensifying the site’s diurnal effect with its cool nights and warm to hot days.

Cristom Vineyards was set up in the Willamette Valley in Oregon, by Paul and Eileen Gerrie in 1992 and they are now producing some of the most sought-after wines coming out of the USA.  They farm their different vineyards organically and biodynamically and then vinify the wines similarly in the cellar so that the differences in the resulting wines are really down to the unique potential of each vineyard, rather than the hand of the winemaker. They have won frequent awards with the critics, 94 or 95 points with the major publications, but we love them for the array of aromas and flavours that are endlessly fascinating to sniff, smell and savour over time!
