Poderi Crisci Syrah 2016

Another great example of our style of Syrah. A very fragrant nose of a whole mixture of berries and dark plums kinking into other aromas like chocolate and cigar wrapper.

The palate is concentrated and very dense, red and black fruit, mainly berries, with remarkable freshness and lovely savory notes on a long finish.

 Poderi Crisci has only five rows of Syrah planted, typically offering up a yield of 2-3 Barrels, or just 600-900 bottles. The fruit was hand-harvested on the 11th of April and as usual, was sorted at the time of picking and again on the sorting table prior to destemming and crushing into an open stainless fermenter.

After 15 days fermentation with wild yeasts at up to 29°c, followed by five days maceration on the skins, we gently pressed and moved the wine into French oak barriques for malolactic fermentation in our underground cellar. After 18 months the wine was bottled on the estate. Only 736 bottles of the 2016 Syrah were produced from three barrels.

Poderi Crisci is fully certified under Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand (SWNZ).
