Petite Sirah is a dark rich wine, the nose is richly aromatic with notes of lavender, black olives and vanilla, with notes of old world complexity. The wine velvety on the palate and has a long creamy finish.
This wine goes particularly well with heavy meat dishes such as steak or lamb chops or hearty winter stews.Petite Sirah is the result of cooperation between winemaker and grower who together shaped the vineyard which brought this fine wine. This 10 year old vineyard is located on the coastal plain close to Gedera and we have been working with it over the past few years and fine-tuning the viticulture every year.
WINEMAKING:The grapes were selectively picked in mid-September.During fermentation the grape cap was pumped over several times a day to increase the depth of color and levels of extraction of the wine in the gentlest way possible. On completing fermentation the wine was pressed out and racked into new American barrels where it was allowed to mature for 10 months.
