Syrah 2017

With a deep purple ink colour, this voluptuous wine entices with subtle violet tones in dark chocolate richness. The entry is soft with well-integrated tannins leading to a velvet palate brightened with hints of pepper and cloves.

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 43% new 225L barrels.

Botanical Sketch

In line with the labelling of the Limited Release Range the Label has been inverted to reflect the status of this wine. This Syrah has powerful spiced aromas of cloves and herbs, much like one would experience whilst strolling through a herb garden.
