    2018 FIDDLENECK SYRAH

    Back when the early days of American winemaking hit a fever pitch, a small group of vintners stumbled upon a region of the Mendocino Valley blanketed with what they referred to as, "The Gold Cloak." This led to a fortunate discovery: The Gold Cloak comprised millions of yellow flowers called Fiddlenecks. Natural cover crops that protected and nurtured the land beneath them. The vintners rejoiced and planted the foundation for their vineyards upon this land and upon the first Harvest Moon, they reaped their reward. Such was the beginning of Fiddleneck, a collection of wines that captures the magic of Mendocino.

    The grapes for this wine were handpicked from vines planted 30-40 years ago in Mendocino County, where the nearby Russian River moderates the area’s hot summer days, preserving the natural acidity of the grapes. The surrounding mountains focus the wind from the river, increasing airflow through the vines.

    After the grapes were destemmed and crushed, they fermented in stainless steel tanks on the skins for up to 2 weeks. The wine then aged in neutral French Oak barrels for 10 months before bottling, unfined and unfiltered.

    DID YOU KNOW?

    Syrah and Shiraz are the same varietal! This grape is known as “Syrah” in France, Europe, and the United States. Our friends in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Canada call it “Shiraz”.

Cocktails Will Never Be the Same.
