After a dry and mild winter, the budbreak started at the beginning of April. Our vines did not suﬀer from frost this year. There were no spring rains either. The ﬂowering began on May 20th. The summer was marked by strong heat and persistent drought. The ﬁrst bunches of Syrah grapes ripened on July 20. The harvest began on August 18 and ended on September 9. The harvest was of good quality despite some losses due to the lack of water.
Pink rose petal with some salmon tinges. The nose shows solar, spicy intensity, mixing up sweet aromas of nectarine, exotic citrus, with a touch of aniseed. Dry, with soft texture, tangy refreshing acidity, quite generous otherwise, its chewy mouthfeel is highlighted by spices and zests. Long, balanced, persistent, intense, a sum of elements that can give it a cellaring potential of 5 years or more. It also charms today, matching well with salmon tataki in pink pepper crust and butternut purée.
