A little less bolshie than last season’s blend, this little number favours the classical scene over jazz. Boysenberry, red plum, cracked pepper with hints of cocoa . The palate is full bodied, with juicy fruit and spice paving the way to great mouthfeel and sculpted tannin structure. It has great integration, even in it’s infancy, it’s harmonious, the length prodigious. Food match, black tea smoked lamb.

The Syrah was picked in early April, and immediately destemmed into open top fermenters, keeping much of the fruit as whole berries. This wine was co-fermented with 2% Viognier grapes. We fermented everything with wild yeast, and the rest with carefully selected strains. The free run wine was pressed and
run to French oak barriques where it rested and matured for 12 months. This wine is unfined with minimal filtration.
