100% Syrah from Ohiti Vinyards, surrounded by hills on a shingle free draining terrace, facing to the north-east, thus ideal for growing and ripening Syrah grapes.
The fruit was harvested in the 7th of April, and tank fermented. Cap management was by pumping over. Time on the skins was at least two weeks. It was pressed and immediately went back into tank, for malolactic fermentation. This vintage has had at least 8 months in oak.
The 2017 Back Block Syrah exhibits pepper, blackcurrant, plum and spice. The mid palate is bountiful in fruit and supported by the well integrated oak.
