2014 Les Collines Syrah - Descendant Cellars
The wine was made by gently crushing and de-stemming the clusters directly into bins without the use of a must pump. Approximately 33% of the grapes were fermented as whole clusters. Fermentation was completed using commercial yeasts and then the wine was pressed into 3-5 year old French 225L barrels where ML took place. The wine was aged for approximately 2O months before bottling. No fining took place and the wine was filtered through a coarse pad to remove the lees.
