A very consistent vineyard, which always has very dark colour and black plum fruit with a gamey, leathery background. This has more to do with Cornas or Hermitage.
This vineyard was planted in 1975 in a fine sandy soil with pebbled ironstone. Dry-grown and trellised, the Syrah vines are encouraged to yield approximately 2 tonne per acre or 34 hectolitres per hectare. The Moritz Syrah vineyard is considered a ‘Premier Cru’.
