Description

Vibrant purple with a purple hue.
Aromas are concentrated, bright and fresh with red currants, black cherry and cassis aromas with elements of bunch and a hint of cool climate spice and floral.
The palate is purely fruited, rich, textured and concentrated with long chains of plush velvety tannins. The fruit just flows through the wine, seamless and continuous. Generous and soft, the acidity works in harmony with the fruit.
Syrah in its most purist form, all that is great about Yarra Valley and the variety.

97 points - James Halliday.

Winemaking Notes

All grapes hand harvested and sorted prior to destemming directly to fermenter for whole berry fermentation. After a three day cold maceration, fermentation spontaneously commenced peaking at 30°C. The fermenter was regularly pumped over and plunged during a three week fermentation. The wine was then pressed to French oak barrels for a 14 month maturation before blending and bottling.

Growing Conditions

A warm wet spring followed by a dry summer and autumn, with low crops and strong varietal characters . Flowering occurred in November, fruit set in late December and harvest on March 9th at 12.8° baume.
