The Syrah and Riesling grapes are harvested together at our Scout Vineyard. We filled various qvevri with whole clusters of Syrah and poured over freshly pressed Riesling juice until the Syrah was fully submerged. The qvevri are sealed and a spontaneous ferment ensues, creating a “carbonic maceration” of sorts. After 14 days the grapes are pressed and returned to qvevri where it ages for a year, then transfered to neutral barrels for an additional year of aging. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Nothing taken away or added except 20ppm SO2. Highly quaffable, summer red. Blast of umami and wild strawberries.  12.6% alc.
