Vineyard: Boushey Vineyard
Appellation: Yakima Valley
Varietal: 100% Grenache Blanc
Located at high elevation, the celebrated Boushey Vineyard produces wines of distinct character with balanced acidity. Layered soils and long, cool, slow ripening time allow for complex flavor development. 2011 was the first harvest using Boushey fruit for Syncline Winery. We are so impressed by the quality, delicious complexity and brilliant acidity, we plan to keep working with this vineyard for the long term.
The fruit was hand harvested and transported to the winery on October 3rd. It was whole cluster pressed in our new Europress and settled overnight. The juice was then racked to one of our concrete “cubes” and one twice filled french oak Ermitage “cigar” barrel for fermentation. Native fermented and then racked to our Nomblot concrete “egg”, the same “cigar” barrel, and a stainless steel tank for elevage. Bottled in March 2017.
