Sine Qua Non Squeezebox - Ziehharmonika Syrah 2018

This biodynamic Syrah from SINE QUA NON, "Ziehharmonika," showcases a rich and savory palate with flavors of dark fruit, pepper, and a hint of smoky bacon. A beautiful wine with a long finish, it's perfect for pairing with hearty dishes like braised beef or a mushroom stroganoff.

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate)

- The 2018 Syrah Ziehharmonika is composed of 82% Syrah, 6.7% Mourvedre, 5% Petite Sirah, 2.3% Grenache, 2.7% Viognier and 1.3% Muscat. “I think Muscat is the number one white grape for me to blend with reds,” Manfred said. “It kinda triples the effect of the wine.” The red winemaking included 14% whole cluster. The vineyard sources for this wine are 51% The Third Twin, 43% Eleven Confessions and 6% Cumulus - all estate owned vineyards. The wine was bottled in August 2020, after 23.5 months of aging. It was reared in 51% new French oak, 46% in used barrels and 3% in terracotta. (The terracotta is only use for whites.) Medium to deep garnet-purple colored—WOW—perfumed black and blue fruits prance out of the glass, revealing accents of candied violets and cinnamon stick, supporting the plum preserves, blackberry compote and garrigue-scented core, plus hints of molten dark chocolate, licorice, Chinese five spice and bacon with a touch of iron ore. The densely laden, full-bodied palate is seriously showy, featuring flamboyant black fruit preserves and exotic spice layers with a solid backbone of ripe, rounded tannins and bold freshness, finishing with epic length and loads of earth, pepper and floral fireworks.
