2018 Syrah Whale Rock Vineyard
Our Whale Rock Vineyard is CCOF Certified Organic and located on the westside of Paso Robles in the Templeton Gap District. This vineyard produces a well-rounded Syrah as the cool air at night aids to retain the acidity while the warm days develop flavors in the berries. This versatile wine will age gracefully and pairs well with anything from appetizers to heavy pasta dishes.
Syrah from Whale Rock vineyard was crushed on October 23rd at a perfect 25.4 degrees brix. The ripeness results in a wine with depth of color and a corresponding lush and velvety mouthfeel. A combination of small oak and larger oak stave-in-tank aging added layers of complexity to this wine. Syrah from this location naturally has more tannins than our other vineyard locations and will reward further bottle aging.
Paso Robles’ first 100% certified sustainable vineyards & winery.
