Syrah

Of the noble grape varieties, Syrah may have the oldest geography and history. The vines origins are thought to date back to one of the world’s earliest wine-producing regions, the city of Shiraz in the Middle East. Now worshipped in the Rhône Valley in France, these dark, dense, and powerful wines can be just as distinct as Cabernet Sauvignon. You’ll find this grape also largely grown in Australia, where it is identifiable as Shiraz.

Sometimes known to be “meaty,” think exotic spices and darker meat dishes to help showcase the complexity of these wines. Syrah needs time to show its greatness, but when it does, you’ll be thankful you had a bottle!

The wines at Holus Bolus are made by the husband and wife team of Peter Hunken and Amy Christine MW. Since 2003 they have made the wines at their winery in the “Lompoc Wine Ghetto” in northern Santa Barbara County, California. The first vintage of Holus Bolus was in 2003 followed shortly thereafter in 2005 with the first release of Hocus Pocus Syrah and Genuine Risk.  In addition to farming their own vineyard, they work with growers who are focused on producing high quality, organically grown grapes from unique sites in the county.

Sourced from a 5 acre Syrah planting at John Sebastiano Vineyard in the eastern edge of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation. The block sits at 1200’ elevation and is consistently exposed to the brunt of the Pacific breeze. This sunny but cool site lends a lovely spice and bright acidity to the wine.
