Deep purple, pickled plums with cinnamon and a little spice on the palate, remarkable tannins, silky and soft but still makes pressure in the finish, a very typical Syrah
STYLE Deep purple, pickled plums with cinnamon and a little spice on the palate, remarkable tannins, silky and soft but still makes pressure in the finish, a very typical Syrah.
Beautiful to veal with porcini mushroom sauce, venison with terragon and bay leaf and mint with dark chocolate for dessert.
VINIFICATION The Syrah ripens until end of October to fully develop its body, before we harvest manually in small boxes to find the best harmony of ripeness and complexity. While 10 days maceration it ferments at 28° C. It ripens in big wooden barrels for 9 month. Finally it stays for another 6 month in the bottle to fully develop its round fruit.
TRAINING SYSTEM The medium high trellis training system and the high canopy provide the berries with optimal photosynthesis and the best air circulation for real good berries. The cane pruning system leaves just one eye to shoot in spring. Additionally to the green harvest this brings a miximum of quality into our berries.
TERROIRIn the hot vineyard Schilling Syrah earns finesse. The soft hill facing south has different tongues of brown earth, loam and loess. This offers ideal conditions for fine fruit, vibrant herbs and elegant acidity. Grapes growing here, have body at lively easiness, because the adjacent forest Plot makes the nights cool, providing the berries with vibrant elegance.
WEATHER 2015To keep it short and simple, this vintage was fabulously best. Warm, sometimes a little too warm, dry, sommetimes a little too dry, and temperatures like summer during the harvest in autumn, served best quality and beautiful quantity to us.
