New to this year's line-up is our estate grown 'Motifs' bottlings. These wines are crafted to offer a distinct perspective of the vineyard compared to their flagship Estate counterparts.

Deep and warm in its coloring, this wine draws attention from the moment it pours. Rich aromas of mulberry, saddle leather and fresh, sticky vanilla bean seamlessly intertwine to offer a bouquet that entices further swirling. In the mouth, the perfectly intense palate is fully saturated with sweet, regal tannins. Flavors of red licorice, cassis and blueberry are accented by Herbs de Provence, spring blossoms and cedar notes. A large-scaled wine of undeniable charm and lightness of being. A spectacular inaugural Motifs Syrah bottling!

The fruit destined for Motifs hails from vineyard blocks that exhibit youthful vigor and produce fruit with magnificent depth of flavor and focus. Farming practices in these particular blocks are exacting and based upon achieving a perfectly balanced vine. Once harvested, the grapes are handled with great delicacy to emphasize purity of fruit and accentuate the wine's inherent charm.
