This wine is a
blend of Grenache, Syrah and Tempranillo. While it is common to
blend Syrah and Grenache in wines made in the Rhone Valley of
France and Tempranillo and Grenache in the Rioja wine region of
Spain, a combination of these three varietals is quite unusual. I
decided to name this wine ï¿½Amalurï¿½, which translates ï¿½mother
earthï¿½ from the Basque language, a nation who live in an area
between France and Spain, as a metaphor to the origin of the
Tempranillo and Grenache grapes for this wine came from the hilltop
Duarte Vineyard in Georgetown while the Syrah from our Estate
vineyards. We followed our normal winemaking protocols and used our
Dual Compartment Submerged Cap Fermentation Tank and aged the wine
in predominantly French oak barrels.
The dark berry
aromas which dominate in this wine carry to the palate adding
herbal and earthy notes. The sustained finish brings in more dark
fruit, cocoa with hints of smoke and licorice. While drinkable now,
this wine will benefit from years of aging.
