Winemaker’s Notes
Named after Corey’s Grandpa Fred and his famous “tall tales,” this Estate grown and produced bottling of Syrah exemplifies what the Rocks District of Milton Freewater is all about – earthy, gamey, aromatic and concentrated with a medium body. Whether it was Grandpa Fred’s heroics on the river as a young boy or the mighty bears he slayed in the big woods, his stories were always fascinating. Perhaps that’s what inspired Corey to become a winemaker — every bottle of wine is a new story waiting to be told!
