2018 Gravitas Estate Syrah

Description

Amongst a flight of Washington Syrah's, this wine stood out as different from the pack. While most appreciate the typical robust blueberry juiciness from Syrah, this wine takes a left turn and heads somewhere thru the Rhone Valley of France, where the wine has more savory and herbal elements and isn't quite as concentrated. Instead, it has a nice balance, has just enough bright acid to keep it light on it's feet but not light in color or flavor. Fermented in neutral, open-topped French Oak barrels along with 5% Viognier, then aged gracefully for 19 months in French Oak. An intriguing style amongst the backdrop of many jammy Washington Syrah’s.

"Considering the rich history of the land that supports an excellent vineyard location, coupled with his award-winning past performances, Washington wine enthusiasts should have little reason to doubt him."

Our Journey
Honoring History with a New beginning

Joseph Christy, who acquired and first developed the farm in 1966, was a chemical engineer, one of the original 125 engineers assigned to the Manhattan Project during WWII. He took to agriculture as he had to science, with natural skill, zeal, and a style all his own. Given his experimental, inventive nature, he was game to try new things and wasn’t afraid to take a risk on a fresh idea. That spirit of innovation is the signature ingredient in Joseph Christy wines.

Today, the land is the hero of our wine-growing operation. We started with profound respect for this place, our place – seeking guidance from the soil, the wind, water, and weather that conspire to nurture our fruit from the vine to the bottle.
