Description

GranMonte Heritage Syrah 2019

GranMonte Heritage Syrah is a full-bodied and robust wine. Reveals an array of aromas from blackcurrant and juicy red berries to liquorice and pepper. Round palate with rich mouth-filling tannins. Ripe plum, blackcurrant and raspberry fruit flavours lead into vanilla and mocha nuances on the lingering finish. 

100% Syrah. The fruit for this wine was picked from 9 year-old blocks of Syrah vines on a slope with darker soil and good drainage. The blocks sit within GranMonte's 15 hectare estate vineyard that lies in Asoke valley, Thailand, 350 metres above sea level. The vineyard operates with a precision farming system called ‘Smart Vineyard’, which incorporates a microclimate monitoring system. The system greatly assists their ‘tropical’ vineyard management to achieve the best possibly quality and higher yield of grapes in this unconventional viticulture climate.

Hand harvesting in the cool mornings of February when the fruit is at its most aromatic. the grapes then go through a hand sorting.
