Grown 100% Organically on south and south-east facing terraces on decaying granite soil. Mechanization is impossible on the very uneven and steep vineyard, therefore harvest is conducted manually by hand, at full maturity into small crates. The vines are cared for manually using organic farming techniques and are trained simple Guyot and Cordon de Royat. Destemmed grapes at harvest are vinified in temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats. Barrel fermentation lasts 2 to 3 weeks. Aged one year in barrels, with no new wood.
Intense on the nose and full on the palate with red berries after a frank attack with good acidity. A saline freshness but spicy, peppery structure, Saint-Agathe, produced from mature Syrah vines on the Condrieu appellation, plays remarkably well on the Syrah, a very pleasant wine, finely crafted like all the Estate’s wines. The wine is meant to be enjoyed between 2 and 10 years of age.
