La Vierge Anthelia 2013

100% Syrah. “Anthelia” means the ability to see Angels. Presumably, if you drink enough of this, that is what happens. Grapes were fully de-stemmed before crushing and then cold macerated for 5-7 days before temperature controlled fermentation. The wine was racked into 50% new French barriques where it aged for 15 months. The floral and spice perfume of the Syrah melds with the Mourvèdre’s textured and savoury notes. It has fine tannins and structured acidity with a lengthy finish of herbs and spice underscoring black fruit.
