Passo del Tempio Syrah Terre Siciliane IGT

2016

In a Nutshell

A huge staff favourite - rich, ripe and super-smooth!

Tasting Notes

Crimson in colour, with vibrant black fruit and berry perfumes. The wine has a lovely balance between ripe fruit characters and a firm structure on the palate. This Syrah is accessible, supple and rounded on the finish.

Production Notes

The fruit was machine harvested and transported to the winery where it was crushed and destemmed and put into temperature controlled stainless steel fermenters. Fermentation lasted around five days at a maximum temperature of 30°C, and the must was pumped over very gently several times a day. In order to control the extraction of harsher tannins, the pump overs were reduced at the end of ferment. The wine was then pressed gently and went through malolactic fermentation. The wine was shipped to Verona shortly after fermentation and stored in temperature controlled tanks until bottling in April.
