The grapes undergo a tremendous amount of triage (sorting) both in the vineyard and in the cellar. They were crushed using a Demoissey destemmer / crusher and were inoculated and punched down immediately to get relatively warm fermentations. We wanted to bring out as much of the natural earth and spice flavors that the berries contained. The total fermentation time was 12 days the resultant wine went directly to barrel and was aged 22 months before being bottled unrefined and unfiltered.
Arcadian Syrah Gary’s
Arcadian Winery strives to create wine that fully expresses the distinct characteristics of each vineyard and California’s Central Coast region. And While they maintain many traditional methods for producing, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah, wine grower Joe Davis believes in gently pushing the envelope of expected winemaking theories in a constant search for elegance and balance in each of the wines he produces.
