Syrah is gaining in popularity and has grown from a little under 400 acres planted in California in the early 1990’s to over 20,000 acres today. As it is one of the more vigorous vines, Syrah requires extra attention in the vineyard with farmers being aggressive in thinning the crop, to reduce crop volume but increase fruit quality. The small vineyard that sources the Goosecross Syrah from just north of the city of Napa, provides ideal warm days, cool nights and rocky soil conditions – a little of the Rhone Valley on your doorstep.

Syrah

The 2019 Goosecross Syrah is an incredible display of wine being fruit-driven and balanced with beautiful earthy tones. Bright black cherry, fresh-cut flowers, dried cranberry, and ground coffee on the more frame the palate full of rich blueberries, rose petals, mocha, and dusty cracked peppercorns.

More about the wine

The two clones from the vineyard were picked and made as separate lots. Fruit was de-stemmed and then cold soaked at 45F for 5 days. Natural ferment started after 5 days so they warmed the tanks up and added PN specific yeast. Fermentation lasted another 5 days, before they pressed the wine off skins.
