Wine Review & Notes
Airfield Estates Runway Syrah was sourced from our Black Rock Vineyard. The winemaking begins with a presort to make sure only ideal clusters are vinified. After being destemmed, the wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks, with pumpovers and punchdowns to extract tannin and color from the skins. Barrels are typically 25%-35% new, and are composed of 60% French, 30% American, and 10% Eastern European. The wine goes through malolactic fermentation and is then bottled after ten months in barrel.
