 What is The Max Q Series?

Rich Funk, Owner and Winemaker from Saviah Cellars, allowed me to purchase a ton of his premium Syrah from his Funk Vineyard, which is located in The Rocks.  Rich makes a wine from this vineyard and it is so sought after it has a 2 year waitlist.  We would call this ultra premium fruit.

We harvested our ton of fruit on 9/25/19.  This is when the chemistry looked the best and also had physiological ripeness at its peak

9/25/2019

Brix 24.8 - pH 3.89 - TA 4.5 g/L

As a winemaker, when you have premium fruit,  from one of the best vineyards, your job is to get out of the way.  

We used 25% whole cluster for stem inclusion.  We punched down the cap three times per day, while also mixing in pulse air as a midday cap management technique. The wine was pressed when tannin structure was perfect and put into neutral french barrels.
