CRAFTED

The Syrah blocks are the lowest on the property and also the very first red grapes we brought into the winery in 2016. Harvested on September 12th, we crushed the grapes to one-ton bins and employed twice-daily punch-downs during fermentation. The juice spent two weeks on the skins, after which it was drained and pressed to barrels (a combination of once-used and neutral French oak barrels) where it aged for 19 months. We selected the four best barrels in the lot to blend for this 100% Sunstone Estate bottling. 

 

PAIRING

The perfect pairing for our Estate Syrah is the Sunstone Smashburger.  Additionally, barbecued chicken or spare ribs and aged hard cheeses like Gouda will pair well with this Syrah.

 

CELLAR

Our Estate Syrah is drinking wonderfully now through 2024.
