Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
2021 was a gratifying year. Bud break came early. We were fortunate not to have been impacted by the frost which affected some of the other East Coast vineyards. Bud break was followed by a warm (but not too warm) summer filled with plenty of sunshine and just a little bit of rain when you would want it (but not when you didn’t) throughout the year, followed by a typical September with plenty of warm (but not too warm) sunshine, cool evenings, and little rainfall. The grapes were very healthy and picking went smoothly. This led to good yields that were just the right size

Winemaker Notes
With origins in the Rhone area of France that likely go back to Roman times, Syrah’s parents are two obscure French grapes: Dureza and Mondeuse Blanche. Nowadays, in addition to France, you can find Syrah grown all over the world. In Australia, where the grape was imported in the 19th century, Syrah is known as Shiraz and has been their star red wine grape for the last several decades. When it comes to blending, sometimes Syrah doesn't play nicely with itself (or other grapes)! So we often have different releases of Syrah with each harvest based on the distinctive qualities of each wine. The 2021 Syrah is made with more press wine, giving it a more exuberant and fruity quality than its counterparts our Phyllite and Leaf Stone wines.
