Über is a co-fermentation of all the top Santa Barbara County Syrah vineyards: consisting of equal parts from Black Oak Vineyard, Colson Canyon Vineyard, Shokrian Vineyard and Watch Hill Vineyard. As each parcel of fruit arrives at the winery, approximately 5% is separated and added to the Über fermenter.
Über is a wild, uninterrupted ferment; more grapes are added over time as each of the vineyards are picked, increasing the maceration time with a continuing ferment over the period of 14 days for the 2015 vintage. The result is a wine with tremendous structure, length, and complexity.
MATURATION Wine matures for 20 months in 58% new Ermitage Foudres, 26% new Ermitage and Françoise Frères French oak barriques. The wine isn't racked until bottled. Un-fined and unfiltered.
