Syrah 2014

With a rich purple colour, this vibrant wine entices with an explosive mix of violets, peppermint and thyme. The entry is juicy and bright leading to a fresh palate that combines flavours of black mulberry and dark chocolate. Rich, lingering fruit; elegant, integrated tannins.

Winemakers Notes

The Shiraz and Viognier grapes were picked together in the 2nd week of February.

Botanical Sketch

Each of our wines is linked to a specific flower – the characteristics of the wine are symbolized by that particular flower on the label.

Herbae (Herbs)

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