This wine displays a beautiful, dark, inky colour. Powerfully perfumed with sweet fruits, thyme, vanilla, fennel and violets. There is a silky, soft feel and glossy texture on the pallet that combine flavours of currents, white pepper and ethereal spice. Rich, lingering fruit and a long, pleasant finish.
The grapes were picked fully ripe.
After harvesting the grapes were crushed together with the Viognier and co-fermented. Fermented at about 25° C for 1 week. No extended skin contact. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel. The wine was then racked off malolactic lees and then matured in 95% French oak, 5% American oak for 13 months. The new wood component was 45%.
In the Cellar
95% Shiraz, 5% Viognier
Our Syrah has powerful perfumed aromas of fennel, thyme, rosemary, violet and oregano, much like one would experience whilst strolling through a herb garden.
Each of our wines is linked to a specific flower – the characteristics of the wine are symbolized by that particular flower on the label.
