  • High Density

    This is a French method of tightly-spaced, meter by meter planting with the goal of stressing the vines. In doing so, root systems must compete with each other for nutrients and water, and with the canopy for sun exposure. This approach inhibits rigorous growth, thereby naturally lowering yields and furthering the development of concentrated berries. Melville’s very limited high-density syrah is bottled separately and only available for purchase in the Tasting Room.
