Topiary Syrah 2016

Syrah grapes are handpicked early in the morning, at the good maturity. Then, after three days cold soak, the wine is fermented. Then matured in French oaks for 12 months to create a real complexity and freshness.

A very interesting wine. Beautiful and complex nose with dark fruits, clove and spice aromas. The taste is incredibly fresh for a red wine and the tannins are perfectly integrated in the wine.

Topiary Cab Sauv 2015

Topiary Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

During fermentation, 2 pump overs a day are done. After 10 days, the wine is removed from the skins and transferred into 228-liter French oaks. (10% new)

Seductive nose of blackcurrant, sweet cherry and tobacco. Dominant red fruit palate with cedar and fine polished tannins.

Topiary Innocence 2018

60% Cabernet Sauvignon - 40% Syrah

Grapes are handpicked at good maturity. Then, after three days of cold soak, the wine is fermented. Then matured in French oaks for 12 months to create a real complexity and freshness. Then blend before bottling.

« Innocence » is a nod to all the kids we hosted here at Topiary. Their looks are memorable, and Philippe, the owner and winemaker, made this blend with the same philosophy. The harmony between the Cab and the Syrah is very well done. The nose is smooth, with the fruity aromas of Syrah, and then when you drink it, the enjoyable taste of the Cab comes in to create a real innocent experience.
