The Hedge

Syrah

$70

Our flagship Syrah, The Hedge, remains one of the most popular and sought after wines in our lineup. It was the first wine produced by TH Vineyards, and the name pays homage to the famed hedges of UGA, where Terry got his football start playing for Coach Vince Dooley. The 2002 and 2003 vintages were made by Justin Smith, of Saxum, who mentored the Hoages in the beginning. The fruit he used came from a part of our vineyard that was planted under the guidance of John Alban. This small block of Estrella clone Syrah was the only fruit growing on the property when the Hoages acquired it in 2002.

The Hedge is the truest expression of Syrah from our west-side property. It is a blend of all of our estate clones, including Estrella, 174 and 383, to name a few. This wine exhibits classic dark fruit and beefy, bacon fat notes characteristic of Syrah grown in a warmer climate. It is rich, round and apt to please both wine novices and connoisseurs alike.
