2017 Petite Syrah
This wine is really about the texture and structure – a “classic Petite Sirah”. Rich and indulgent, with chocolate and mocha, smells like a coffee shop. Lovely acidity yet rich and decadent. Powerful and restrained. It’s a food wine. Its enormous. Macerated red berries and blackberries with interesting secondary notes of maple, sage brush, gravel and new leather. Nice acidity- well balanced. A decidedly different wine from Domaine Artefact’s offerings. A versatile food pairing wine it can go with grilled ribs, beef, lamb or pork.
The fruit was destemmed and fermented in open top containers and then left to macerate for four weeks. After pressing, it was racked to French oak barrels with 50% of its aging in new oak and 50% in neutral oak and aged for 19 months.
