Jaffurs 2018 Larner Vineyard Syrah
Regular price $54.99
Our Syrah at Larner Vineyard is planted in deep, sandy soils over a layer of chalk. A single row of Viognier is harvested and co-fermented with the Syrah, adding complexity and a floral lift to the finished wine. Shows aromatics of blue fruit and gravel, maintaining minerality on the palate, with explosive flavors of currant, berry and bramble. Beautifully balanced, this wine straddles the line between power and elegance. A Syrah that can be enjoyed within the first five years of the vintage in its youthful charm, or held for many more, as it will gain nuance and complexity over time.
