Edmeades Eaglepoint Vineyard Syrah

Edmeades Eaglepoint Vineyard Syrah Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: The Eaglepoint Vineyard is the perfect course for Syrah. It's one of those rare sites that allow this Rhone native to grip it, rip it, and still keep it in the fairway. Taste the soil and flora of Eaglepoint. Revel in the blueberries, chocolate brandied cherries, smoked meats and spice that characterize this Syrah. Keep your head down, left arm straight and remember to make a good shoulder turn.

Varietal Definition
Syrah is the eight hundred pound gorilla of Rhone grapes! In the vineyard and the winery, Syrah is typically an easy grape to work with - healthy, early ripening, resistant to mildew and rot; suitable for winemaking in a variety of styles. The wines from Syrah are tannic without being harsh. The wines will have a taste and smell of dark blue fruit like blackberries and blackcurrant, with a strong spicy side where one can find freshly ground pepper and other spices. Syrah is famous for its part in the French blends, such as Côtes du Rhone and Châteauneuf du Pape.
Fermented beverage made with honey, water and yeast optionally with flavoring ingredients.
