Syrah is a grape you likely know well if you frequent Balistreri Vineyards or are generally an enthusiastic wine drinker. Teroldego on the other hand, is a much less famous grape. Native to Northern Italy,  it is a thick skinned, dark colored grape capable of a huge range of flavor profile. With 96% of its production existing in Italy, it is not a grape we see a ton of in the states. That said, there are some Colorado vineyards that have recently planted the varietal, and we couldn’t be more excited.  What does this have to do with Syrah? The varietals are actually very closely genetically related through a grape called Dureza. Dureza and Teroldego are sibling varietals, and Syrah is a result of combining Dureza and Mondeuse Blanc- you can think of Teroldego as Syrah’s much less famous uncle.

My recommendation if your thinking of buying this pack: buy two. Each of these wines are already gold medal winning at various competitions. The Teroldego and CSU Syrah are very small production with only two and three barrels respectively. These wines are incredible now but show a lot of potential for aging over the next five to ten years.  The Horse Mountain Syrah is already showing more spice as it spends time in the bottle. Fun fact, the CSU Syrah and Teroldego are both examples of foot tread wines!

This is likely the only time you will see these wines discounted (15% off and 25% off for Wine Club Members!), and they are worth being very excited about! Cheers!
