Case of Iona Solace Syrah
Layers of bramble and red berry fruit, with spicy, peppery aromas. Energetic and lightly rich palate that emphasises floral elements.
Grapes were hand harvested into small crates and spend overnight in a cold room.
Extensive bunch sorting by hand prior to destemming occured. The grapes were not crushed, with 11% whole bunch for complexity. Fermentation was allowed to start naturally, with gentle punch downs twice a day by hand.
Fermentation temperatures peaked at 28°C.
During the winemaking process, we tried to keep with Rozy’s farming philosophy, thus no enzymes, yeast or sulphur was used during the winemaking process. The wine is not fined or filtered with a small amount of sulphur added before bottling.
