GOLD MEDAL - 2020 Langtons Yarra Valley Wine Show

“Well, syrah has certainly earned its place at the top tier this vintage. Fruit off the close-planted site (5200 vines/ha) at Oakridge, mostly destemmed, with 20% whole bunches in the ferment. Matured 10 months in 10% new French puncheons, harnessing the elements into a complete wine. It's wonderfully savoury, spicy and smoky, with plentiful grainy, textural tannins. It's full bodied, but there's no excess here.” – 96 points Jane Faulkner, 2022 Halliday Wine Companion

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. - Winemakers Note

All grapes hand harvested and sorted prior to destemming 70% of the berries directly to fermenter on top of 30% whole bunches for 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.

Selection - Oakridge Vineyard, Close Planted Block. East-facing at 120 meters above sea level. Planted at 5,200 plants per hectare in the grey alluvial loams of Coldstream using the R6VW28 clone and cropped at 5.8 t/Ha.

Vintage - A warm wet spring followed by a dry summer and autumn, with good crops and strong varietal characters. Flowering occurred in November, fruit set in late December and harvest on March 5th at 14.0° baume.

Reviews

Deep ruby-red core into a vibrant and bright purple rim. Mulberry, ironstone and salami aromatics. A medium-bodied style. A bright core of supple and bright purple fruits that is layered with curing meats and slaty minerality. The tannins and acidity both guide it into a very long finish. Still very primal: cellaring patience will be rewarded. 29 MAR 2021.
