Winemaking Notes The 2016— our ninth vintage— Mescolanza Syrah blend was picked on September 28th. Our 2 acre block of new vines resulted in just over 4 tons of fruit, which had a brix of 24°. As these young vines mature, the resulting wines continue to develop characteristics similar to the wines of France’s Rhône Valley with its classic aromas, richness, and balance.
We are extremely pleased with this wine and, as with all School House wines, it is neither fined nor filtered; thus, you may find sediment in the bottle. 276 cases were produced.
