Glenwood Grand Duc Syrah 2017


Only the best grapes were picked at 25.5°B and fermented in small open-top fermenters. Punched down by hand 6 times daily until fermented dry. Grapes were gravity fed to press. After pressing, the wine underwent natural malolactic fermentation in barrel. Wine was matured for 24 months in a selection of new premium French oak barrels.

Rich layers of spices with hints of black fruits and liquorice. Pairs best with well matured rump or sirloin. Best to mature for further complexity. Drink within 7 – 12 years from vintage.

Only 1200 bottles produced.

Vintage Another drought year with lower night temperatures resulting in the fruit ripening slowly allowing the development of small bunches with highly concentrated flavours.
