Syrah vines are at average age of 16 years. The forming is double vertical shoot positioning (VSP or double guyot), the density is 4000 plants per hectare. The yield is controlled at 5-6 ton/ha. Regulation of production is twofold -the first operation is always done when the height of the shoots is 15-20 cm. Only one shoot per bud is left. This creates spaces suitable for the growth of the shoots, more air circulation. The second regulation is made when the bunches start to change color, in the veraison period. The evaluation is done carefully every year. Excess and low-quality bunches are eliminated in order to obtain a correct plant production.
42/25 Rose Syrah shines in a gorgeous salmon pink colour with delicate grеy shades. Intense and multi-layered bouquet with attractive notes of red berries - strawberries, raspberries, and cranberries, intertwine with a tone of green apple, cherry, and ripe lemon, surrounded by fresh green herbs, violet, and strawberry leaf. А refreshing fruity taste in the mouth, dominated by ripe raspberries, morello cherries and gooseberries. 42/25 Rose Syrah is fresh, vibrant, and perfectly balanced wine, with a light body and a gorgeous fruity finish.
The harvest begins in the second half of September: a bit earlier comparing the one of the same grape varieties for red wine. Grapes for 42/25 Rose Syrah are hand-picked in the early morning and carried out in 10-12 kg boxes.
After cooling the grapes are carefully double sorted by hand. At first the whole clusters are sorted and after being destemmed, the second sorting of the grapes is carried out. The fine selection of grapes is sent by gravity for gentle pressing. A cold soak for a few hours takes place in order to allow aromas from the skin to penetrate the grape juice. The grapes are than strained and delicately pressed into stainless-steel tank with a capacity of 500 to 5000 litres. Clarification for a few days preceded the yeasts introduction and slow fermentation at controlled temperature. Upon finishing the fermentation, the wine is cooled and kept on the lees for 5-6 months, batonnage (stirring) is carried out if necessary. Filtration, clarification and blending complete the winemaking process.
