Melville 2021 Syrah Estate "Donna's Block", Sta. Rita Hills

($63.99 Incl. tax)
in stock
The Sta. Rita Hills fusion of old-world approach and new-world California fruit yields a captivating mixture for the senses. Its aroma is rich with hints of white and black pepper, olive tapenade, black fruits, fresh tobacco leaf, and blood orange.

Donna’s Block sits on a small 3.6-acre section located in the northeast portion of our vineyard composed of sandy soil – think beach sand minus the umbrella. This block endures an incredibly long and exposed growing season within the Sta. Rita Hills cold-climate wind and sun. Grown in this inhospitable climate, it can be challenging to get syrah to fully ripen, but with our supportive organic farming methods, we are able to nurture this delicate block and find it produces a syrah that is stylistically elegant and intriguing. Planted to equal parts Clone 1 and Estrella selection in twenty feet of well-drained and nutrient deficient sandy soil, this block results in a wine of great depth and concentration, along with high-toned and hypnotic aromatics.

The Wine Country.
