The Walls Vineyards

2017 Concrete Mama Syrah

ACCLAIM

VINTAGE NOTES

Co-fermented with Grenache, also from The Rocks of Milton-Freewater, this wine delivers a true sense of place. The team agrees that style does not capitalize on the “funk” specific to The Rocks District but incorporates it, finding the footing to make truly beautiful wine from a difficult place. The secret to the Rocks District is that fermenting its fruit in concrete gives more control, that way you get a slower, longer fermentation so you can extract more out of the fruit. Crazy beautiful wine…that’s what we’re bringing to this party.

Because this wine brings a little bit of everything — black olive, smoked meats, mint, blackberry — to the table, it would be great to drink with…a bit of everything! Or, if you must focus, we most definitely enjoy it with smoked pork topped with salsa verde or even a spicy herb salad with mint, thyme, arugula simply dressed with olive oil, salt and pepper.
