Storm Haven Vineyard is the 107 acre home and heart of Synchromesh. With large elevation changes and varying geology, we are able to explore very different expressions of Riesling form each block. Farmed without synthetics or chemicals and following a holistic approach, we strive to grow our vines within the existing ecosystem rather that manipulating it. All this is supported by a 70 acre sanctuary to protect the sensitive habitat that calls our property home.

The Storm Haven label represents the pinnacle of wines from this property in a given year. Orange rind, mango core, apple blossom and honeysuckle outline the complex nose. An intense explosion of sweet fruit in the mouth is carried on high viscosity and carved up by the signature acidity structure of the Storm Haven property. Delicious now, this wine will be fresh and evolve for decades. 65 cases made. 

'This is the first release of the Storm Haven series for Synchromesh, coming off their home site, and the result of 10 years of experimentation there. This floods the palate with honeyed pear, lime pith, savoury and salted brown butter, with a firmly grippy frame that draws this long to a very lingering finish. A very masterful wine, that will only improve with age. If you get the chance to find this, buy it. pH 2.77, 11.4 TA, 64 g/L RS, 8.4%. 94 points' - Treve Ring, Gismondi on Wine Aug 27, 2020
