2020 Langtons Yarra Valley Wine Show
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.
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.
