Esporão Syrah

Philosophy
Wines that are produced only in exceptional years. Made from singular grape parcels from the estate vineyards that express the unique potential and character of the individual grape variety.

Harvest Year
An extremely dry year, with rainfall concentrated between December and February. The period from March to August was hotter than average, resulting in an early vintage. With these higher temperatures during the growing season, most grapes were picked in very ripe conditions resulting in rich wines with body and depth.

Soil Type
Shallow, stony soil with poor structure.

Grapes Varieties
Syrah.

Vinification
Temperature controlled fermentation (28ºC) in small stainless steel tanks.

Maturation
12 months ageing in american oak barrels, 12 months bottle ageing before market release. Great ageing potential.

Chemical Analyses Álcool / Volume
14%

Wine makers
David Baverstock and Luís Patrão.

Colour
Deep and dense red.

Aroma
Ripe red and dark berry fruit aromas, tobacco and gamey notes.

Palate
Dense silky fruit on the palate with robust tannins, good acid balance delivering a persistent finish.
