Every grape that goes into our Syrah is grown and harvested here at GlenLyon. We’ve never added store-bought yeast to the fruit and it always begins fermentation as Mother Nature (and Dionysos) intended. (Squire insists “There’s magic afoot!” each year it begins bubbling!) With minimal intervention and after the fruit is magically transformed into wine here at GlenLyon, the wine is aged, cellared, bottled and stored here until it leaves our home for yours. Hear! Hear! Hear!
Each vintage of GlenLyon Estate Syrah has a common thread of bouquet and flavor. The Syrah is always noticeably complex, elegant, supple and harmonious with hints of red raspberries, cinnamon, cocoa powder and bitter-sweet chocolate. The fruit, tannins and alcohol are always in perfect harmony. Our Syrah is always round and rich without being overbearing.
You’re gonna LOVE it!
Without a doubt, lamb is the perfect choice to compliment our Syrah but Squire likes it A LOT with BBQ’d fresh salmon with a touch of olive oil and cracked pepper.
