The Inheritance Estate Syrah

"Oh, the anticipation when something passes from one generation to the next. Too often what we dream about and what we get are a little different. Luckliy, our inheritance is a steep 10 acre vineyard, right in the heart of Sonoma. Try a glass, we think you'll be happy to pass it down." - Jordan Kivelstadt, Wayward Son

The Kivelstadt Vineyard is located 4.5 miles northwest of the small town of Glen Ellen. This shallow and well-drained soil is formed from weathered metavolcanic material. Rock outcroppings are all over the vineyard, and this unique shallow soil is a trademark of many of the greatest vineyards in the world. The drainage helps us to ensure the perfect amount of water stress, which helps the vines produce the best grapes possible.

Varietal: 98% Syrah & 2% Viognier

Why did the Kivelstadts choose Glen Ellen as their vineyard’s home? They love old world wine, so only the coolest region in Sonoma would do. While planting the vineyard in 1997, the Kivelstadts decided to plant multiple Syrah clones on multiple rootstocks. This brings complexity to the blend of Syrah picked from different blocks of the 10 acre vineyard. Kivelstadt Cellars makes every decision with one goal in mind: making the best wine possible. Stylistic winemaking decisions do not start in the winery, they start in the vineyard. Not pulling leaves in the fruit zone, pruning late to stretch out fruit ripening and spraying neither herbicides or pesticides are a few examples of farming decisions that ensure ripeness at lower sugar levels. The vineyard is farmed organically.
