Viticulture and Vinification
Syrah is made from grapes which are part of the yield control strategy adopted in the vineyard. Syrah vines have a tendency to over crop which can lead to thin wines if not controlled. At Cramele Recas, this is done by removing a portion of the grapes soon after flowering, before the vine has started to swell them into grapes. Thereafter the emphasis is on fully ripening the remaining grapes to ensure generous flavor and deep color. The in-winery handling of Syrah is basic and relies on simple processes to preserve the grape flavor and keep the wines open and agreeable.
Purple red with violet reflections, good limpidity. Intense aromas of red fruits (sour cherries, blueberries, black currants), floral aromas (violets).
