Stephane Montez du Monteillet 2016 "La Syrah a Papa",  Collines Rhodaniennes, Rhône Valley, France

Located in Condrieu, high up on a gorgeous west-facing slope overlooking the Rhône River, this superb estate is managed by the young and charismatic Stéphane Montez, the fourth generation of his family to run the estate. The Chaillées terraces, dry stone walls that were built by the Romans 2000 years ago, have helped to create this region's exceptionally long wine growing history., and is where Stephane's vines are planted.  

Winemaker: Stephane Montez

Farming: Sustainable

Varieties: 100% Syrah

Terroir: Located on the left bank opposite the Estate on rolled pebbles. Schist and granite soils. 

VINIFICATION: Hand harvested. Two sortings occur before fermentation: one in the vineyard, and one in the cellar. The wine is 60% destemmed, and 40% whole cluster, with fermentation in stainless steel. 

AGING: The wine is held for 15 months in French oak before bottling.

TASTING NOTES: A deliciously supple Syrah with warming notes of ripe red plum, crushed huckleberry, smoked tea, hints of lavender and a long, earthy finish.
