2012 PULL CdR
The combination of the fruit profiles from Grenache, Petite Sirah and Syrah really bring this wine to bear. The concentration of flavours creates a powerful presence while still maintaining sophistication and balance. The blend is both well structured and harmonious. Layers of fruit continue to emerge as the wine opens up, revealing more and more of the wine’s personality.
Viognier is used as the ‘glue’ that binds these varieties together. Its co-fermentation with Syrah adds depth to the texture and produces a seamless palate that enhances the dark and red fruits offered by each different grape.
The wine is bright and very fruit forward but continues to deliver right through the middle palate. We chose to allow firmer tannins to emerge to assist in ensuring a clean and balanced finish.
