Syrah 2016

With a deep purple ink colour, this voluptuous wine entices with subtle floral tones and plummy richness. The entry is juicy and bright leading to a round palate that combines flavours of ripe plums and dark chocolate. Rich, lingering fruit; firm but integrated tannins.

Winemakers Notes

The Shiraz and Viognier grapes were picked together in the last week of February.

The Harvest

The Shiraz and Viognier grapes were crushed and co-fermented. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel. The wine was matured for 24 months in 39% new 225L barrels.

In the Cellar

98% Shiraz, 2% Viognier

Botanical Sketch

Our Syrah has powerful perfumed aromas of fennel, thyme, rosemary, violet and oregano, much like one would experience whilst strolling through a herb garden.
