Glenelly Glass Collection Syrah (2017)

New

The Glenelly Glass Collection Syrah has a wonderful bright and rich colour with deep purple undertones. The aromas are intense with jasmine, cinnamon and bacon notes coming through. The palate is well balanced and textured with soft round tannins and a pure fruit core shining through which has flavours of white pepper spice, spicy plum and dark berry.

    Rain in November and January meant that less irrigation was required, but disease pressure was higher and stricter controls were needed. The high moisture content of the soil resulted in vigorous growth and canopy management was crucial. Fortunately ideal dry and moderate conditions reigned during ripening in late January and February and there was good flowering and berry set. Harvest was one week later than normal due to a late cold winter and cool spring but the quality of the wine is exceptional.

    The bunches of Syrah for the Glenelly Glass Collection were sorted and placed whole into the tanks, where the wine was allowed to slowly start fermenting naturally with two to three pump overs a day. Post fermentation they were given three weeks’ extended skin contact before being transferred into used French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation. The wine stayed in the barrels for twelve months.
