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.
This fruit was hand harvested in the early morning of September 24th. It was then brought back to the winery and de-stemmed into small open top fermenters. After a native fermentation was completed, the free run wine was aged in a combination of 225L and 500L neutral French oak barrels for 16 months. Bottled in March 2018.
