Wine tasting notes

This Syrah has aromas of wild raspberry, blueberry, cracked pepper and hints of vanilla bean on the nose. Powerful, ripe tannins give the wine great structure. Oak plays a supporting role to the wine's pure fruit expression. This purity combined with refreshing natural acidity mean there is excellent potential for ageing.

Vinification Notes

Grapes were hand harvested from a range of individual sites and clones and then fermented separately before blending post-fermentation. A range of maceration periods allowed for increased complexity. 30% whole bunches were included in the fermentations which contribute to freshness, aromatics and structure. A very small percentage of Viognier skins were included in some batches to further aid complexity. The wine was aged for 14 months in a mixture of new and old 228 litre French oak barriques and larger 5000 litre oak casks.
