This Syrah is a co-ferment of Syrah and Viognier. One of the primary reasons for using Viognier with Syrah is that Viognier enhances the color of the Syrah. The Viognier does not dilute the Syrah, it complements the wine in both color and flavor. Viognier has a beautiful floral aroma along with tangerine and peach notes that enhances the aroma of Syrah that can include plum, cigar box, black pepper, smoked meat and bacon fat. On the mouthfeel, Viognier provides the Syrah with a silkier mouthfeel.
