Tasting Notes:

The nose displays ripe red fruits, white pepper and dried herbs. On the palate there are blueberries, raspberries along with some darker fruits. A hint of oak, mocha and a real earthiness add complexity. Fine chalky tannins and balanced acidity provide a plush mouthfeel. This wine will benefit from decanting and will age gracefully for 5-10 years


The best rows of Syrah are isolated early in the growing season and managed accordingly with the aim of producing our most premium Syrah. Fruit is hand-picked in the cool of the morning. The fruit is then separated for two individual ferments, whole bunch and whole berry (de-stemmed). Fermentation is carried out by wild yeasts with only the occasional pump over. The whole berry ferment accounts for 30% of the final blend and the whole bunch 70% of the blend. The whole berry component provides a purity of fruit whilst the whole bunch component adds a rustic complexity and lovely tight tannins to the final wine. After fermentation, the wines are pressed and then aged in 4-7 year old French barriques.
