Kunin Wines

Syrah, Kunin Wines, 2016

£30.00 Regular price

After several years working for other producers, Seth Kunin set his sights on producing a range of wines reminiscent of the elegant Rhône wines he loved, settling on the Santa Barbara region - California's coolest wine-growing area and until then known chiefly for its high-quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. California has undergone a revolution in recent years, and many other winemakers came to the same conclusion as Seth Kunin - that their State is not merely capable of producing fruit bombs, but also subtle, elegant, complex and ageworthy wines. He helped to start the revolution and he continued to lead it until he very sadly passed away in October 2017, leaving his wife and business partner Magan to take up the reins and continue his legacy. One of our absolute favourites.
