2015
Fall 2018 Release.  100% Syrah.

We are pretty fortunate to call the Willow Creek District  our home. With its cooling coastal influence, high free lime concentrations and variety of aspects, we believe it is one of the world's premier growing environments for Syrah. The 2015 Akasha helps back this up with remarkable depth, concentration and varietal intensity. It is impeccably balanced with all of the beautiful aromatic presence of a cool climate and the richness and weight of a warmer climate. With ripe round tannins and an underlying acidity keeping it fresh and lithe, the wine is massive yet never cumbersome. As with all Torrin wines, Akasha was fermented with wild yeast utilyzing only punch downs for cap management and basket pressed. It was aged in 300 liter French Oak barrels for 22 months of which 60% were new. It was bottled unfined and unfilterered and is cellared for an additional 13 months prior to our scheduled fall 2018 release. This will no doubt age beautifully in sound cellar conditions for 10+ years, but can be enjoyed with a decant while young. 

Akasha is a word that represents the belief in an element from which all other natural elements; earth, wind, fire, and water are derived. For us at Torrin, Syrah was the element that drew us into the Templeton Gap and what is now Torrin Wine. From that, Grenache, Mourvedre, and other Rhone Varietal based wines have gloriously emerged.

FALL 2017 RELEASE. 100% SYRAH.   -SOLD OUT-

"Always 100% Syrah, the 2014 Akasha comes primarily from the Torrin Vineyard and was aged, on lees, in 60% new French oak for 18 months. Blackberries, graphite, scorched earth, pepper and loads of crushed rocks nuances make for a sensational Syrah that’s going to flirt with perfection with a few years of bottle age. While I've always loved this wine from Scott, the purity of tannin and balance in this vintage is at another level. Hats off to Scott for this insanely good Syrah." -Jeb Dunnuck:  99 Points.

FALL 2016 RELEASE. 95% SYRAH/ 5% GRENACHE.  -SOLD OUT-
 

"Leading off the lineup and just a killer Syrah that does everything right, Hawley's 2013 Akasha (there's a splash of Grenache in here as well) is getting up there with some of the top wines to come out of California. Coming from cooler, north and east facing slopes, and aged 18 months in 60% new French oak, its inky aromas and flavors of black currants, blackberries, smoked meats, earth and pepper. This full-bodied, concentrated and impeccably balanced beauty has fine tannin, no hard edges and blockbuster length. In short, it's a gorgeous wine I wish every reader could taste!"
