2018 Sis & Mae Wine Co. Steelhead Run Syrah
2018 Sis & Mae Wine Co. Steelhead Run SyrahWe pick our syrah a little bit earlier than most. We are aiming for a Northern Rhone style syrah that highlights the savory and structural. What results is a medium bodied wine with some nice blueberry fruit, but accentuated with black pepper, smoke, and black olive. Some may call this cool climate syrah – we call it Southern Oregon syrah grown and vinified with care. Totally destemmed, fermented open top with indigenous yeast, raised in neutral barrel for 8 months and bottled without additions, fining, or filtration. This is as pure an expression of the grapes that we could produce.
