Qupe Qupe Syrah X - Block 20Th Anniversary Bien Nacido Vineyard 2005
The idea behind this wine was to make a wine to celebrate our 20th vintage and last another 20 years. This is a very special bottling. It is 100% syrah from a sXa t block at Bien Nacido, which is the oldest syrah block on the vineyard. This is a block that was planted to Riesling, on its own roots, in 1973 and grafted to syrah (Estrella clone) in 1986. I made our first Bien Nacido Syrah from the first crop in 1987 and it was a giant step up in quality from our previous Syrahs. For this wine we cut down the yields of part of a sXa t block to 2A" tons/acre. The grapes were harvested on October 25th at 24.0 brix, 3.24 pH and 7.3 acidity. We used 33% whole clusters with stems in the fermenter, which adds a noticeable spice character and additional tannin. The fermentation was done in a small open top fermenter and was punched down manually twice a day. Fermentation lasted 14 days with an additional soak on the skins for 5 days. After pressing, the wine went into French oak barrels for aging. For this wine I decided to use neutral barrels so that the Bien Nacido terroir could really show through. It was kept in barrel a total of 20 months, racked twice, lightly fined with egg whites and bottled without filtration. Twelve barrels (290 cases) were produced
