2016 White Hawk, Syrah


Varietal: 97% Syrah, 3% Viognier

Vineyard: White Hawk Vineyard 

Region: Santa Barbara County AVA


Bottle Size: 750ml


This Syrah is made from some of Santa Barbara County’s most sought after fruit. From the famous White Hawk Vineyard’s sand dune-like upper slopes, luck was with us for the 2016 vintage and we got 1.5 tons of their most coveted Clone-6 Syrah. We co-fermented the Syrah with about 3% Viognier. White Hawk tends to be ultra concentrated fruit bomb stuff but with great lively acidity and gorgeous herbal and savory nuance. Aged for almost two years in four French oak barriques, one of them a new Tremeaux which imparted sweetness, smoke, cinnamon and toasty oak. This wine is a BEAST and while enjoyable now, requires cellaring and decanting to realize its full potential.

Additional Notes:
