Single vineyard, single clone, single soil type.
100% Syrah made from clone SH9c.
Deconstructed Lake District Cartref SH9c 2017
Sourced from a single parcel in the western part of Elgin the 9c clone when planted in cooler areas is known to produce wines that are well scented, delicately balanced and savoury. They are medium in weight resonating elegance, finesse of tannin, and purity of fruit, the flavours revealing more white pepper, violet/lavender, Victoria plum and iodine. They tend to exude freshness and energy with lively acidity giving precision to the wine. The Cartref soils, a mixture of decomposed granite, pebbles and quartz, add gracefulness and heighten the fruit intensity.
