2015 Dutchman Vineyard Syrah

100% Dutchman Vineyard Syrah - Yakima Valley

Dutchman Vineyard was planted in 1991 by Bill denHoed on his family’s farm near Grandview, Washington. Dutchman is the second oldest Syrah vineyard in the state. The vineyard checks all our Syrah boxes: cool climate, old vines, & meticulous farming. 

Tasting notes

The Dutchman Syrah has aromas of sweet blackberry and marionberry with briary red and black fruits in the background.  Notes of salinity, dried sagebrush, menthol, and light barrel toast leap from the glass.  The mouthfeel is lively and fresh; fruity with balacning acidity and a mix of blackberry and marionberry fruits.  Dense but lithe, with tannins that are plentiful but fine grained and restrained.  The Dutchman Syrah has a light touch with great depth.

Production notes

The Dutchman Syrah was hand harvested on September 29th, 2015.  50% of the grapes were destemmed and 50% of the clusters were added "whole cluster" to the fermentation bins.  The Syrah was fermented by yeasts native to the vineyard.  Only the free run wine was retained for the Dutchman Syrah.  We use Fresh oak burgundy barrels (30% new) to age and develop the Syrah and allowed the wine to age sur lie for 18 months prior to bottling on April 7th, 2017.
