2018 Brecon Petite Sirah

I met a jolly larrikin in the mirror this morning. Not spied him for... well I don’t remember how long really. It was that fun fellow with the child in his eyes. Reminded me distinctly of this little drop. Rich and mature with a refined cigar box persona, but with that distinct Peter Pan never grows old brightness and vitality. I believe we last partied on his barn roof being spellbound by velky vuz (the big dipper in Czech,) and that, I suspect, is its perfect pairing. A barn roof, a warm blankie and clear starlit night. BTW, the Surgeon General (maverick that he is not) probably advises against barn roofs, gravity and full bodied Petite Sirah!

Production notes

Joking aside, we take our Petite Sirah program pretty seriously. Importing American oak matured in Australia, selecting some of the rarest clones in the county from the very tippy tops of these rolling calcareous hilltops. We treat them very much like a revered Barossa Syrah in the winery. Open top fermenters and similar oak/aging regime.

Seems we always manage to sneak in a little Brecon Estate fruit. It's what makes our house style I suppose, in this case ~ 5% Petit Verdot. But seriously the majority is from two complementary Petite Sirah vineyards. Mainini, a stunning Calcareous ridgetop and head trained vineyard. It is only just over the county line in Monterey and has always been about providing both silky mouthfeel and ripe, bordering on jammy fruit. Rolph, Westside Paso hillock, cooler climate with a more structured and blue fruit character.
