Mattina Fiore selected the grapes for this cool climate Syrah from Murmur Vineyard, expertly managed by Rob Murray. He produces the perfect fruit for our wines, selectively dropping fruit late in the season to produce a lush richness in the clusters left hanging. The yields for this vineyard average only .5 tons per acre and this syrah is the last of the varietals to be harvested. Our winemakers, Scott Williams and Robert Henson, then nurture the fermentation to enrich the elegant style and its complexity.
This vintage was then aged for 22 months in one half new French oak and then chosen to stand-alone as 100% single Clone 174 Syrah. Mattina Fiore’s limited production and the remarkable flavor profile has inspired us to elegantly hand pack the 2013 Syrah in six-bottle cases.
