Nestled between the Hunter’s Valley hills only 3 miles from Casto estate lies the Lyons Hunter’s Valley Vineyard.

The Lyons estate rests at an elevation of 2,000 feet on a site with deep and rich topsoil where Vince and Barbara Lyons tend to their vineyards by hand.

The 2015 Syrah showed great promise from the beginning, and drought conditions reduced crop size but increased concentrations of color, fruit, structure and tannins. 

Aged 14 months in 20% new American oak, our Syrah is a focused and deeply colored wine with smoky and meaty aromas with concentrated raspberry and blackberry flavors.

The texture is full bodied, firm, and moderately tannic. 100% Syrah, pH 3.6, residual sugar .5 g/l abv 14.4%. 190 cases produced, enjoy now through 2027.
