Highlawn Wine Co. 2018 "Halcon Vineyard" Syrah, Yorkville Highlands, Mendocino Co., CA

Winemaker: Philip Cuadra

Farming: Organic

Variety: Syrah

Terroir: At 2500 ft., it is one of the highest elevation vineyards in the region  and provides spectacular views down the Anderson Valley.  Strong winds  blow through the vineyard, providing a cooling breeze in the hot times  and a blow dry in the wet.  Thin, rocky, volcanic soils force the vines  to struggle for the nutrients they need.  All these extremes translate  into a spectacular place to grow Syrah, at place that keeps acid and  ripens beautifully.

Vinification: The Halcón Vineyard Syrah is destemmed and fermented in open-top fermenters until being pressed at dryness. The wine is aged in neutral oak until being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
