Our goal is to make the best possible Syrah from the vintage. We always start the same way; lining up our favorites in the cellar, usually those fermented in concrete & aged in puncheons. All wines are tasted blind and rated. Three vineyards consistently rise to the top for Syrah – Forgotten Hills, Red Willow,

and Les Collines. Since 2017, Les Collines has been the star performer for the John Lewis cuvee, especially the famed Block 46. This vintage is comprised solely from Block 46 from the Les Collines Vineyard.

We fermented the wine 90% whole cluster in a large concrete tank for 21 days with native yeasts. Selected from a large 2000-liter cask and 500-liter puncheons, the resultant wine is 90% neutral oak and 10% new French oak from a single puncheon. The Syrah, never racked, was aged for 19 months, then bottled unfined and unfiltered.
