2016 OVID. Syrah
Our Syrah is truly hand-crafted in tiny batches, and our non-interventionist methodology has been steadily evolving since we made the first OVID Syrah in 2009. We included a portion of whole-clusters in our tiny open-top tank to add some structure and intrigue. Following spontaneous fermentation, it was aged in burgundian french oak barrels with minimal racking until bottling in June 2018.
The 2016 OVID Syrah exudes aromas of fresh blueberry and blackberry, roasted meats and iron, juxtaposed with rose petal and Madagascan vanilla bean. Burnished tannins frame the round and expansive palate and should grace this wine with a long, compelling life.
