Syrah

Soil

The parcels of vines are located in the districts of Charnas, Tournon and Mauves, where the principal soil and climate
components that make for great
Saint-Joseph wines can be found.
Here there is granite terrain formed by geologic alteration, and content carried in by the wind ensuring that the soils are
good for water filteration and restriction. The altitude and wind exposure (including
the Mistral) ensure natural regulation
of pests while providing freshness
throughout the summer. These kinetics
of slow maturation, give “Granilites”
a potential for freshness, minerality
and a particularly interesting tautness.

Harvest

By hand in dry, sunny weather,
on 5 October 2010.

Winemaking

Temperature controlled fermentation in concrete vats, using indigenous yeasts.
4 weeks maceration was carried out, followed by malo-lactic fermentation in cask.

Maturing

Maturing is carried out in casks for the first 12 months, and is completed in concrete tanks for 6 months.

Alcohol degree

13%
