A savoury palate of structure with red and black fruit coupled with fine grained tannins, all bound together with a sweet clip of new oak. This is an intense Syrah, but in a alight way. It will mature well to the end of the next decade.
Cooler climate growing regions like the Yarra Valley are heralding an elegant style of Syrah (Shiraz) and our elevated, well drained site, coupled with suitably chosen clones create a graceful yet powerful wine.
Our fruit was gently picked on various dates depending on the clone before and being separated into whole berry or whole bunch ferments (5% – 10%). It was then racked to barriques and puncheons (35% new) where it slowly aged for 18 months.
