Syrah Grande 2015

As winemaking is concerned, we isolate special sections in vineyards that we work with. We are looking for a little more ripeness than is usual for us. In the case of the 2015 vintage we picked the exposed, or afternoon sun side of the vineyard row exclusively and fermented then aged them separately. We used a higher percentage of new oak (50%) than is normal for Donelan. The end goal is a wine that encapsulates the vintage, is unique (sourcing) from year to year, and a wine that is pushing the boundaries of the Donelan house style.
