Winemaker Jon Phillips Notes
Both the Grenache and Syrah were open top fermented, pressed to barrel. Aged for 17 months in 30% new French oak and 70% neutral oak barrels. The Viognier component was fermented and aged in stainless steel. This wine is unfiltered and unfined. Avaler is collaboration between two friends, Dylan Sheldon and Jon Phillips, who believe delicious wines should be on your dinner table every night. Small productions of good wines made by good people, Avaler up. Tasting Notes: This second vintage of our Cuvée is a crowd pleasing and modern expression. The Syrah carries the front end, leading off with lovely aromatics of sun warmed boysenberry and bing cherry compote, followed by barrel aged nuances of a lush hazelnut-milk chocolate mid-pala ...more... te. Grenache brings red-vine licorice and hibiscus to the party. Viognier is the liaison and lends itself to the plush texture and silky finish that invites another sip.
