Kerr Farm Pamela Syrah is a grape we started growing in 2005 and the first wine was made in 2007. It was Jaison’s mother Pamela’s 80th birthday in 2007 so we named this Syrah after her.
The grapes were hand picked on a beautiful sunny day in April 2010. Destemmed and crushed directly into an open top fermentation tank, it fermented for about 3 weeks. The must spent a further few weeks macerating on the skins to extract flavour, tannin and colour. The must was then pressed and the skins removed. The wine was racked into two barrels. One new American oak barrel and a one year old French barrel. Here it stayed until early May 2011. It was egg white fined and allowed to settle. The bright wine was minimally filtered and then bottled.
The bottles are heavy, tall, Premium Bordeaux bottles with a cork closure and hand dipped sealing wax.
Deep purple red in colour, seductively perfumed. Juicy red berry fruit characters and hints of spice and white pepper on the palate
ONLY 45 CASES MADE. Available from the cellar door only.
