During the growing season, I spend my time walking the vineyards, talking to my growers and sampling the grapes. When I determine that they have reached their optimal ripeness, the grapes are hand harvested. They are then transported to the winery where they are hand sorted and destemmed into half-ton macro bins. The grapes are then left to cold soak for approximately five days. After the cold soak, the grapes are inoculated with yeast and are punched down by hand 3–5 times/day depending on what stage of fermentation they are in. At the end of fermentation, the must is pressed off into barrels where it can then undergo its’ secondary malolactic fermentation. All our Syrah is aged for a minimum of 15 months.
