2017 Austin Hope Syrah
The Austin Hope Syrah was grown on the Hope Family Vineyard in the Templeton Gap region of paso Robles. Four Syrah clones are planted in separate blocks in the vineyard all of which are high-density spaced. The vines are managed to keep cluster counts low, resulting in fruit with great intensity and rich berry flavors.
The 2017 Austin Hope Syrah is once again a fabulous display of the Hope Family Estates terroir. Its signature aromas of leather and spice are enticingly beautiful. On the palate, hints of mocha, clove and fresh tar create a meatiness that is robust and seductive. This intensely full bodied wine finishes with delicate tannins and a bright acidity surprise.
