‘Fruit balance, crunch and vibrancy.’
Pinot Noir and Syrah together might be an oxymoron to some. The blend, however, has a great heritage in Australian winemaking with many legendary wines made of this blend in the forties and fifties by some of Australia’s most famous winemakers!
This could simply be the middle ground when trying to create a light dry red; the place where the nervous tension and acid of the Pinot helps make the spicy, tannic Syrah fundamentally softer and more approachable.
About equal weight of each variety helps make the blend not more than the other, and it is this balance that makes it right for any occasion.
