A kind reminder for those who want to know about a bottle of Siriki
A kind reminder for those who want to know about a bottle of Siriki

Siriki is a Syrah, born from a single vineyard facing south, between 250 and 300 meters above sea level, and begins fermentation on a pied de cuve of the same grapes.
Three days later, when the fermentation has just begun, we add grapes for a third of the tank and after two more days the tank is fully filled.
The pump over happens open air and the liquid can breathe in a large bucket and put back on the cappello twice everyday.
It is never added sulfur dioxide, on the grapes or during fermentation, nor when he goes in the bottle.
After the alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation spontaneously starts and after that the wine will go in a stainless steel and will be transferred when necessary.
The bottle of Siriki must be temperature-controlled stored, not above 22 degrees and not below 15, not exposed to direct light and must be kept in horizontal position.
The absence of sulfites and the refining in steel tank will preserve that ripe and fresh fruit aroma that characterizes the wine.
It can be stored for at least 5/6 years and then we'll see its natural evolution.
