StyleRipe & Juicy
These wines are made by Alana McGettigan and Matt Thomson at a private winery in the hills outside of Trapani. Alana manages to fit this into her other commitments(Alpha Zeta, Ponte del Diavolo and Il Faggio) as the harvest for Catarratto and Syrah is in the first half of September. She selects the fruit from the estate’s vineyards and vinifies it in their modern winery, which is well equipped with a must chiller, stainless steel tanks and temperature control. Sicily’s temples were built by the Greeks, who brought the vine to Sicily 3,000 years ago. Today, alongside the remains of the finest temples is a path (Passo del Tempio) that enables you to wend your way past these magnificent buildings.
Crimson in colour, with vibrant black fruit and berry perfumes. The wine has a lovely balance between ripe fruit characters and a firm structure on the palate. This Syrah is accessible, supple and rounded on the finish.
